Drawing a Blank
When was the last time your walked away from a discussion, only to think of The Perfect Comeback hours later? Recreate the scene for us, and use your winning line.
I never jump into discussions until unless I know full facts about the subject. In fact I don’t argue for the sake of winning but to acquire knowledge. So there never were any incident of walking away leaving it in midway. In our group whoever is right and is well acquainted with the subject and facts get a good listening.
I have come in contact with many persons who want to win an argument at any cost. The will raise their voice, get heated up and take it as an insult to admit they don’t know about the subject. To prove them right they start fabricate examples. They wont stop until they think they have convinced everyone. To avoid friction I keep quite or walk away. If someone is happy with half knowledge and wants to celebrate it, it’s okay with me. I’ll never go back even if I have correct information.
I find it foolish. Knowledge is like an ocean, no one can claim of knowing everything. If you are not ready to listen to other with open mind ,better avoid joining in any discussion.
Ocean of knowledge is very vast
Dive in and you will learn very fast
If you claim to be very wise
Then you are in for a surprise
You know nothing dawns on you at last
Don’t surprise me with the stars and moon
In your adoration let me swoon
Your Heartfelt smile
Will go a mile
Mellifluous song in my ear just croon

“At least sixty percent of earthlings are mad! They are an intolerant lot. They have forked tongue.”
The Alien father was passing on his knowledge to his son while touring the earth.
“They talk of brotherhood, love, compassion and compatibility but will kill each other to prove their supremacy over who was civilized first , over color, cast, creed, over whose culture, religion is best, or over as silly an issue as whether one is spoon person, chopstick person, fork person or eats with his hands.
We never judge people by their food habits but by their credentials.”
