Reality is not an emotional state. Facts don’t care if you like them. Objective truth persists even after you stop defending it.
If someone trains their body, practices daily physical exercise, learns muscular control and athletic skill to the point of being the best, we put a gold medal around their neck on TV. If someone trains their mind, practices daily rational thought, acquires knowledge and technical skills to the point of being the best, we go online to call them elitist and tell them to keep their opinions to themselves.

Of course, mother nature, you’re going to make those last 40 klicks towards my annual goal cold, windy and very challenging, aren’t you?
It snowed all night. Despite the 4×4 in my garage, it’s the kind of morning when I’m glad I have a bus pass and the option not to drive some days.
If you need an idea for Christmas, dad, you guys could just buy me my own computer. I’d be happy with a small one.
