Sorry about the scarcity of the free ice cream today, but I just haven’t felt up to it. Or much of anything else, actually.
But I just remembered that I found a new blog a short while ago, House of Eratosthenes, that I really like. I like his common sense approach and his curiosity when it comes to why people believe what they believe rather than just what they believe. I like even more the fact that people who can’t answer that question piss him off, because they piss me off too.
You can have any point of view you like, as long as you can come up with a better reason than “because I do” for holding it. If that’s the best you can do, then I have no use for it. I can get that from a parrot or a rock, although I’d have to paint the opinion on first in the latter case.
And Mr. Freeberg seems to think the same way, so please welcome him to the Dept. of Common Sense.
