Today's Quote:

Most men are within a finger's breadth of being mad.

Diogenes the Cynic

He's right. A point I often make. Talk to anyone long enough and they'll eventually reveal their crackpottedness.

That goes for you and me. Some of the time it happens because an opinion is shorthand for a whole series of arguments and worked out reasoning, but comes off as callous or curt.

But a lot of the time, people are just crackpots lacking wisdom, logic, or knowledge.
