        Actually...the ironic part of this quote is that the day before yesterday it was the figurative "you" that was the ignoramus.

    Well, the biggest problem about this is that tomorrow you might as well learn something that makes your yesterday's knowledge irrelevant... And your opponent right tongue

    That's a bit like the undeniable truth that anyone who drives slower than you is an idiot and anyone who drives faster is a maniac!

    Is that because you have learned to drive faster than anyone else?

      It still would not eradicate idiots. In fact, it would turn every other person on the road into an idiot big_smile

      As The Indexer, I tend to think it has nothing to do with the actual speed you drive smile It has to do with the mindset...

      A date is an interview, the resume is the line of questioning. To get the job you just have to be quick to answer the questions the way "she" needs you to answer them.

      Oscar Wilde was in a pretty comfortable position from which he could say anything he wanted and "get away with it." He is even supposed to have said, or is credited to have stated that people blame the circumstances and not themselves ... Well, just a remark. smile

      Shown every time we laugh at something bad that happens to something else. If we took a moment to think of it happening to us we would find we would be terrified. Of course...it is possible that the same people we laughed at would laugh at us!
