The Mark of the Idiot Beasts
A few here, like Trauma Hound are stressing out about the idiots, fools and internet cowards who hit and run thier posts. Well get used to it boys and girls the internet is as crazy as all get on. We all make mistakes and say silly things that we later regret but that doesn't make you an idiot. I have no personal axe to grind on this so don't think i'm necessarily talking about you (but if the insult fits, wear it! :) I say some ignorant things on this world circling machine at times (the way i formulate sentences positively frightens some people lol)
Most of you reading this are wonderful warmhearted people and some idiots are good people too. (i.e; "road to hell paved with good intentions" types) Don't fret - if you are readfing this and worrying that you might be an idiot, then it's most unlikely you are one (most idiots have trouble self-assessing) You'll have no trouble identifying your true idiot. Idiots rarely have anything original or interesting to say - ....... even their insults are stolen from the pop culture box.
idiots are like a fart filled balloon .. There's a BANG! ... you respond PHEEWEEE!!!! ... and ..they fly off to all parts of the room .repeating themselves as they go .......
I have long given up trying to educate and reason with idiots in the science of valid reasoning and deductive argument. The typical conversation with an idiot goes something like this:
unclebruce: - makes a well reasoned point, verifyable statement or whatever .. (albeit it with a south australian bent )
idiot: UNCLEBRUCE YOU CLUELESS KOOKY BUCKET OF SHIT!!! ... ANYWAY THAT CAN'T BE RIGHT BECAUSE PROFESSOR GW BUSH DOESN'T SAY IT THAT WAY ON TV!!! blah blah blah!!!!!!!!!!
unclebruce: (mmm .. this nut might have a sense of humour .. ) I love you too sweetheart (now let's see if the idiot has anything in its cranial cavity) ... more premise given in support of a valid conclusion.
idiot: WELL I BETTER SAY IT LOUDER THEN!!!! BLAH BLAH BLAH!!!!!!!!!
unclebruce: (mmm .. time to put the blow torch to the idiots belly) the big guns of the argument are then fired full broadside, sinking what slim chance the idiot ever had of causing any more than a ripple in the fabric of ideas we call insight and understanding.
it's at about this time that idiot proves itself a true coward by disappearing up his own incendary arse or something .. Some particularly nasty idiots will even start a backstabbing email campaign against you.
So never lose heart folks, even the best and bravest of us get all hot and bothered by the slings and arrows of internet idiots. How you handle one is entirely up to you, but i think hitting back hard is much more friendly than letting the idiot think it has you sulking or something.
bye folks, just wanted to vent ... unclebruce (who could write for weeks about the bastards he has met :)
ps: any of you still talking to me?
Trauma Hound: America is a great country and great countries can withstand critisism and close examination .. cheers.
