People who start out ignorant and opt to remain that way gives me a pain in the ass. The worst part–or ONE of the worst parts is–they usually think they’re being witty and profound. I yearn to ask them questions until they corner themselves, realizing they don’t have a clue. Sometimes I actually do it; I’m not a roaring genius but I try to make sure I have valid information before I spread it around like peanut butter.
For goodness sake. With the availability of information now, it’s harder to stay ignorant than it is to learn! As fellow humans we have a responsibility to not influence other individual’s treatment choices based on dumb, random ideas. Next time you encounter the local dumb-ass, tell them GO LOOK IT UP!!
