I have seen a lot less of this kind of behavior in my life lately. It makes me happy. It could be a matter of maturity. As my friends get older they're less dickish and purist and feeling the need to throw around their geek cock, and make sure everyone knows how much more correct they are than everyone else, and maybe it's a bit of selection bias, or a combination. Those who were willing to mature with everyone else got to stay around, those who didn't were shunned? IDK.
Has anyone else had this experience? Is it just less cool around geek crowds to be all "alpha geek" about crap all the time? Or is it maturity?
I was thrilled the other day when on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, they were making jokes about the senate discussing "The Nuclear Option" and someone saying "I think this is REAL PROGRESS, I mean on the one hand, the senate is talking about enacting the Nuclear Option, but on the other hand, no on is talking about the Nu-cular option."
I haven't heard anyone annoyingly defending "nu-cular" as an acceptable 'regional' pronunciation lately, and that, is a good thing.
What an interesting Post.
The highly intelligent? The geek?
The regular Boys and Girls?
Is it a Normal and Natural part of growing up that some people are never challenged to do?
The every bit makes a difference crowd. And; The wtf the Universe is a Big Place crowd.
The Nuclear Option? What do you think That is?
I think it is not possible.
We were able to end life on this Planet. Well...Human life.
It is not possible for one person that is all in a Snit about something to Push The Button.
Sure we can Blow up Cities and Islands and stuff.
We can Blow the shit out of a Mountain that has no intention of Blowing.
The Cold War was a highly imaginative time.

What about Shoes in the House?
It that a Pet Peeve?
Do you wear shoes in the House?
I had a No Shoes Upstairs Rule.
If you want to do inside house the things
and go back outside, hang out down stairs.
If you want to Take Off Your Boots and Relax, go upstairs.
That Rule was a good Rule.
I did not mind people noticing that I broke the Rule.
I made the Rule. I understand the Rule.
I know my slippers and your hiking boots are not equal.
Both are shoes.
They do not carry the same amount of mud they do not impact the carpet in the same way.
Nagging! I Hate Nagging!
I am not exactly sure what it is.
Nagging is like Porn.
I sometimes know it when I see and hear it.
Sometimes it is like a fucking unknown language.
I think, I don't like it. What is it? Nagging?
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
