I had occasion to break out an old gem earlier today, in response to some nonsense along the lines of “I understand that that’s how you feel…”
Me, paraphrased: “That’s not how I feel. That’s what I think. I didn’t say what I just said because it felt good. I said it because after careful research, careful reasoning, and careful studying, that’s what I have to say because that’s what I think and that’s what I can prove.”
Pretty sure that didn’t earn me too many brownie points, but such is life.
Lots of hits and visits from Ukraine lately. I hope everything’s OK over there.
