one of the frustrating things about internet conversations is there is no context about who you are speaking to. on the other hand, i guess it levels the playing field if no one else realizes i have a colander on my head right now, but i digress, you are a chill dude surreal.

yeah, i see your point. if people existed in some kind of platonic realm of ideas that would be fine but our thoughts and words are mostly rude approximations of what we are trying to communicate. its just easier to have the short hand of seeing who you are speaking to so you can judge whether or not they are sincere and approaching truthfulness or just using words to forward an agenda.
