    ...but I am pretty sure I can form an opinion about it.

    I try not to take myself seriously, but occasionally I do take my opinions seriously. I have found that the more seriously I take them, the greater the likelihood that they are wrong. I believe this holds true for most human beings, and a large portion of extraterrestrials as well.

    What that means is that I rarely get upset just because someone thinks I am wrong. As I will probably act like a total jerk more than once when defending my opinions I would hope that everyone remembers that it indicates the probability that I am completely wrong and off base. If we all remember this it will make life a lot easier in the long run.

    You can use this place as a sort of Schrodiger's cat box. Which needs attention. Or not.

    It is a prerequiste that everyone on USMB think that they know everything about everything. Get in line!

    Reasonableness will not be tolerated!

    Welcome to the board. I would say, keep an open mind, but it sounds like you already do. There are a few extraterrestrials here and they are, for the most part, very hard headed.

    Change may to do and you got that part right.

    That, you should be damn sure of.

    Speculation on your part.

    I never get upset when someone thinks I'm wrong. I act like a jerk all the time. If we all remember any one thing, I will be surprised. Whether life is easier or harder for me will have nothing to do with you're being a jerk.

    He/she (I suspect she but it does not matter.) did not claim to think to know everything...only alluded to the possibility that she may not know everything. I contend that the probability that she does not know everything is one.

    :welcome: , Quantum Windbag. May you blow us all away with wisdom and enlightenment.

    We know you don't know everything.


    Cuz I already do. Or, more accurately, my wife does. You can ask her.
