It would help if you named some of the topics where this happens. I don't think I've ever experienced what you're referring to -

A couple of examples...

I recently noticed that the music streaming service on someone's TV was different and asked when it changed. After being asked what the heck I was talking about, I pointed out all kinds of differences from the old service and in reply was told that it was just a different channel. I tried to explain the difference between a "different channel" and a "different service" and was treated like I was insane for even suggesting there was anything different.

Another time, I was in the backseat of a car. The front passenger insisted we needed to be over one lane in order to remain on the highway. Knowing the roads very well, I said it wasn't necessary and was promptly argued with. The driver changed lanes all the same. As we approached the interchange, I pointed outside showing that our original lane continued the same way we were going. However, she couldn't hear me over her continued insistence of how wrong I was.

Pontificate -

To stop halfway across a bridge and stare down into the flowing water below and to be overwhelmed by this feeling of, well, you know, something pretty kinda heavy and deep and - well - important in a metaphysical sort of way that probably really matters and that fills you with this brimming sort of sense of your place in the universe and you hope you still feel this way tomorrow at work, or at least until you've explained it to your spouse


"Impossible" Conversations

January 9, 2019 at 2:04 PM

Do you ever experience what I like to think of as an "impossible conversation?" By this, I mean a situation where you are trying to explain a very basic, simple concept to someone and they just look at you like you have three heads and suggest that you are making absolutely no sense whatsoever. This may be accompanied by a raised voice.

I've gotten to a point where I know when to give it up, but I still have a hard time keeping the aggravation out of my voice as they fail to understand me. Anybody know people who do this? How do you usually deal with it?

People who are quick to judge you if you make a mistake, but are slow to congratulate you when you reach a goal.

So this chat bot thing at the bottom of the screen needs to go. As much as I enjoy eavesdropping on the mysterious chat people, I just typed out a long post in another thread and accidentally hit the chat bot before I posted it and it brought up the chat room and when I went back to the thread everything I had typed was erased. And now I'm annoyed and dont think I'll retype it 😠

That's because history has long been taught in a way that can be tested on a Scantron form, not in a way that inspires actual thought. The long-term trend towards testing being all (instead of just easy/lazy/mass) has only made this worse.
