You ever find yourself surrounded by a group of people, people who you kinda know, but not really? I mean, they're acquaintances, but not much more than that?
You ever listen to them rambling on and on and on, and then suddenly you're struck with the realization that they're all idiots? Or even worse, mindless sheep?
Yeah well, me too.
It's a very revealing realization, and not a particularly good realization.
This is why I remain convinced that talking to and/or listening to people is, generally, a pretty bad idea.
