I'm totally with you. I'm one of those people who think that the world would be a better place if people spent more time talking about the weather.
I almost got my degree in broadcast meteorology. But when I realized I had to know math and science to do that, and not just look purty, my brain threatened to implode and I bailed. But I have been on a couple of storm chases and have actually been just yards away from a tornado, which is killer cool. Quite an adrenaline rush.
I just wish people would STFU because everything already been said.
Been there, done that.
Wake me up when its raining frogs.
Maybe you can talk about the problem with the natives and why the empire will always work.
as tedious and predictable as these discussions are, they are in some sense the fuel that keeps the coffee flowing. it's symbiotic.
i find it hard to figure out what to talk about now that i've moved past a lot of those topics. i've figured out what i think, and i dont really ever bring it up anymore.
its like i lost my opinionated edge when i realized that i dont really need to argue with anyone about what i feel.
i usually feel trapped by the lack of depth in conversation, but i've come to notice that i equated depth with an argument or philosophy or something concerning matters which were only able to be grasped when i didn't understand them at all. now that i do, or at least see most of the picture, there isn't really a side to it. it just is.
Yeah, totally. I used to hate the lack of deep conversations - and now I tire of people who always have an opinion about everything, and need to share it with you. It's ironic. Now I wonder how many of those people I used to think were shallow were just confident enough in their own views that they didn't feel the need to rehash them with every stranger.
