The first step is admitting you have a problem.

Hi there.

I am a man. As a man, I have opinions. If you're lucky, I will share them with you.

You see, my opinions are not just a random assortment of views and positions that I've accumulated over the years. Not at all. Each one is logically derived after careful consideration of irrefutable First Principles, arranged by the guiding light of pure rationality. They are glorious in their elegance, boundless in their complexity, and unrivaled in the field of pure philosophical truth. They are... perfect.

And I have opinions on everything. I have opinions on Abortion. Not just "an opinion"; oh, no. Opinions. I have opinions on parenting, driving, the nature of art, the economy, fashion, gay marriage, children who won't stay quiet in restaurants, the role of government in society, abstinence-only education, gun rights, free speech, artichoke hearts, and taking the Christ out of Christmas. And those are just the areas in which I've enlightened my fellow human beings in the last three days.

So the next time you start to talk about your views on anything, you should stop and ask me what I think, first. It'll save us all a lot of time.


  1. I see we have something in common we are both perfect asses. :)

    Seriously, I love the discussions where the other person assumes you think just like they do.

    Like you, I have an opinion on most everything. just ask...........I'll be glad to pontificate. :)


  2. Yep. I come from a long line of academics. Not only can I pontificate with the best of 'em, I can go off on tangents that last for weeks!


Feel free to leave comments; it lets me know that people are actually reading my blog. Interesting tangents and topic drift just add flavor. Linking to your own stuff is fine, as long as it's at least loosely relevant. Be civil, and have fun!
