There is a collective of metalheads in my town, some of whom are in my social circle. My best friend dates one of them, and so her mans friends and I
have been socialising together more over the last year. They are a fantastic group of dudes and dudettes, but they are not very well informed about
the things that go on in the universe, or on the quantum level, or the historical and geopolitical context within which we are all living our lives.
I love hanging out with these people, since their sense of fun and humour are of precisely the right sort in my estimation. They call me the wizard
though, because I am always coming out with things that make them question their understanding of existence, giving them data they lacked before, and
because I often light my cigarettes with a magnifying glass!
It can be very difficult to realise, that although one might not be the most qualified, or the most well off, or even the most intelligent person in
the room, that one possesses the most knowledge, because it makes one worry for others, and because it means that one rarely has the opportunity to
match wits in conversation in normal life. For that reason, amongst many others, I love this website, and the chance to discuss matters of import,
with people who have wisdom and knowledge pertaining thereto.
