Green with envy

I woke up early this morning to go for a run when I noticed a chicken crossing the road. Don’t worry, this is not an elaborate set up on the old “chicken crossing the road” joke. No, I really saw

The problem with being smart

I know it doesn’t seem like there would be a problem with being smart. In fact who wouldn’t want to have the problems associated with intelligence? However, I also believe that their is truth behind the statement, “Ignorance is bliss.” If you are dumb, I am guessing you are probably unaware that you are a moron and therefore happy with life and what life puts in front of you. There is a certain charm and appeal to that. However, the real conundrum comes from people who are smart, educated, and who are well spoken, but are still quite stupid despite these attributes. I call them intellectual morons. Now that would be plagiarism if I didn’t reference Daniel Flynn, who is actually the person who coined that phrase in his book by the same name Intellectual Morons. But it is true. There are many people who are brilliant or at least intelligent, yet somehow can’t seem to wrap their heads around very basic ideas. And the reason why, as I eluded to above, is actually quite easier to pinpoint than I originally thought.

Oh, you’re an expert. Then you must be right

I am so sick and tired of people saying that something is true because there is an expert that agrees with their point of view.  Or that there is some “official person” that has declared their position valid.  It upsets
