Please, don't even try to be witty, Nex, you just trip yourself up.
I'm stating the obvious. You obviously can't comprehend.
You can't choose the life you're living. You couldn't live my life even if you wanted to because you're you and I'm me. Hence my statement: you have no choice, never had.
If I'm capable to realize someone to be more intelligent and wise than me, then I'm not following that person "blindly", quite the contrary.
I welcome other's ideas on how I should live my life, and assign extra points if the author makes me comply.
You're clearly contradicting yourself, since you've just proven to be non-receptive to other people's ideas.
I'm not asking you to take MY word for it, look it up for yourself.
Although I suspect you'd throw it out as "elitist" because you don't understand, in which case it wasn't meant for you from the start.
You're absolutely right in one thing though: I am elitist. Absolutely. 8-)
