I am often quite literally surrounded by people who seem to exist in an entirely different universe than myself. They don't think about anything the same way I do. All their opinions are rooted in xtian dogma or fox news, or both. They spend most of their time encouraging and propping each other's bullshit up. Or bashing on all the various groups that they hate (but they don't hate anybody, right?). Sometimes I wonder if I will ever need a procedure to surgically un-roll my eyes. Most of the time I can barely stand it.
So I come here. A few years ago I discovered this site and read it for weeks before joining. I was thrilled that there are actually people who feel like I do about stuff. It is therapeutic for me actually. Helps keep me from losing it. It gets lonely sometimes to have nobody in the real world with similar thought processes.
So I just want to say thanks to everyone for being intelligent rational thinkers and sharing! It always makes me feel better.
