    There you go runnin' off at the mouth again SH!

    I used to have a high-stress job and sometimes on the drive home I'd scream to relieve tension. One day after work I looked in my rearview mirror and saw the woman behind me, a very self-contained, quiet and efficient social worker had her mouth wide open in an apparent bellow.

    I talk a lot to myself when I'm angry. I also go through discussions that have made me mad and think about how I should have done or said. Or I might imagine the next discussion with the annoying person and think up the best ways to get my point across (or insult them).

    And from her perspective, Anja could have been singing:

    Hee. Now that I think about it, that's probably what I was doing, after all. Singing. Yeah. Singing.

    I was reading in a couple of debate threads tonight and wondering why they strike me as stilted. And it came to me:

    When I was in college taking classes to teach me how to be a teacher (which, by the way don't help much in the long run. Learning by doing is better, for me.) Anyway. I remember thinking that people who spend a lot of time telling people what they shouldn't believe are as tiresome to me as people who collar me on the street and tell me what I should believe.

    Walk into a classroom full of kids and presenting yourself as the ultimate authority and that you are going to prove to them why they are misguided (read dumb) is a good way to close every ear in the room pronto. And probably also to have a tough time maintaining any semblance of learning atmosphere.

    People, and as I remember students usually fit into that category, like to present their ideas and have them considered with respect. So do teachers, by the way. So how does anybody learn anything by being told they are wrong? As I remember, they usually don't.

    That's what bums me out about debate. It's an interesting art form and some do it very well, probably to keep their brains well exercised and limber, but I doubt that anyone is ever converted, pro or con, by attempts to prove superiority over them.

    Nolla, I just came back to watch the whole video.

    No, that wasn't what my decompressing looked like. That was what the job looked like!

    Reasoning as a way to prove yourself superior. I guess I haven't thought about it like that. I know I do it myself sometimes. I value some of my own ideas enough to make them part of me. Then it will be like I was defending myself and not my ideas. It helps when you think about how improbable it is you could have a unique idea...
