    It has to do with the Internet. A wonderful addition to our lives and culture, but we aren't really aware of the impact that it can have and we haven't yet learned how to use it in a socially acceptable way.

  4. Pretty much. This is coupled with the desire to win arguments at all costs, even if they're one man charging up a hill against an entire army.

    The typical vaccine debates consist of dudes who haven't taken infectious disease, immunology, or toxicology. They expect to "win" against those who have. That's kinda like never practicing bass and expecting to beat Wooten in a duel.

    I"m not an expert at anything. I"m not even an expert at keeping my mouth shut when i should know better. But I am getting better. I have earned a brown belt in shutting up and someday I hope to earn a black belt.

    Not only are most people not experts, far too many of them can't even tell the difference between opinion and facts.

    An expert is a person who knows more and more about less and less until they know everything about nothing at all.

    It's because of the internet. People read a few short paragraphs about how to do something, and then they think they can do it.

    Judging by the expression on the face of this Basset hound next to me, I'm pretty damn good at scratching a dog.

    That's about the only evidence of excellence I've seen out of myself today.
  17. I excel at pissing people off.

    I'm apparently way better than average with an iron-sighted rifle too.

    There are worse combinations.

    I'm not an expert at anything, but I'm fairly well informed on many things.

    I have varied interests and would say I know more than most about many topics.

    Having a technical mind and good memory, I often find myself explaining how things work.

    I've been called a modern Cliff Clavin.
