I never intend to offend others; unfortunately, I often do so unintentionally.Intro
It is a known fact that I tend to come off a bit... strongly shall we say. Sometimes this is good, and sometimes this is bad. Appearing absolutely confident just seems to be the way I portray myself. Although I might seem to have my mind totally made up on an issue, do not assume that I will be intransigent. I try quite hard to maintain an open mind on most issues. Now, with that said, there's a very relevant quote: "An open mind is like an open window -- it needs a screen to keep the bugs out." Also keep in mind that I love sarcasm -- chances are that what you are taking personally was not meant to insult you in any way.
I would love your thoughts on my thoughts. I find it quite enjoyable to discuss such topics, as long as things do not get out of hand. I've come up with a good deal of the below all on my own and I have [less clue than I think] of how far off from the target I actually am. If you take any of the below as an insult, I apologize, but I also ask you to ensure that I really meant it as an insult.
Another thing you will want to know is this: I have not laboriously edited every page here and sometimes I can be quite random. I'm not sure why this should cause a problem, but if it does, I apologize in advance.
The bottom line is this: I want to do my best to be intellectually honest. Without this, people are lost.
