I am sorry you feel that way. Of course, this being a public forum, we must take the bad with the good, and common sense doesn't always appear to be common. But, I have found that most of the regulars here are pretty even-keeled, and some of the others just spout off stupid crap to see if they can start something, which they usually do. Some go a little overboard, in which case I just don't say anything, like the kid that got killed riding on the shopping cart. Yes, it was stupid, but my god I can't even count all of the stupid things I did when I was younger, and if not by the grace of god...
Ain't it the truth! Sometimes I feel fortunate I even survived my youth. I just watched a cop show about Spring Breakers at Lake Havasu, AZ. One cop said he'd been policing the lake for 15 years and the intelligence level of college kids seems to be declining a few points every year. I can believe it!

We used to have an expression in the Safety Department: "You can't legislate against stupidity." People belong to three groups: 1) those who WATCH things happen; 2) those who MAKE things happen, and 3) those who say, "WHAT happened?"

I'm fairly sure, from my observations, that the most intense comments come from those lacking in life's experiences (read "youngsters"), the ignorant (content to just get by on what little they know), the pot-stirrers ("just here to piss people off") and the prejudiced ("We don't care how you did it up North, boy!"). One thing that can be said for all of them - they're consistent. The rest know what these posters can be expected to write even before they post due to the shallowness of character and lack of empathy toward the misfortunes of others.

Pi to 420? I thought pi came after 420?
