      EVEN WHEN I GET MY NEW GLASSES . There will be many things I will not see .

      Scared the hell outta both of us yesterday when I almost ran this lady off the road . Couldn't see her in the blind spot in the truck I borrowed . 

      Lately I keep running into these blind guys :

    Fanaticism comes from any form of chosen blindness accompanying the pursuit of a single dogma.

      I have admittedly felt a kind of  blindness after these encounters 

     

      "  We're blind to our blindness. We have very little idea of how little we know. We're not designed to know how little we know. "

     

      Can't remember who said that one . But it is very frustrating .

    Wow dude, that isn't good for sure.  Best of luck to ya.  AT one time I was blind till I had an operation.  Wore glasses for over 50 years.  Now just need reading glasses.  My doc was good I cut the lens from both eyes & made new 1's that he stuck on with tiny spikes.

      It took over a week for the topic to actually change in that thread ( once I put in for the change ) . People! PEOPLE! CHANGE THE TOPIC HERE ! Seemed like a good idea at the time . Again it was for the reason of what the title denotes . Now . A place to go off , vent , derail . But not necessarily to denigrate , insult , destroy and demean . But who can stop that ? Right ? Can't . 

      I also get a kick out of the want to be moderators that are so quick to point out a spelling error . Or something grammatical imperfect . Or the ones that actually know what you said better than you did . And the context you intended . And will fight to prove it . Lol . 

      I hope that thread remains a place for any that wander too far from the " honesty " topic and the new one " for nice people only " . 

      It's locked now . No one will be going there

      I almost made a mistake by thinking it might be nice to start a " random act of kindness " thread . But all i could envision were butcher knives for its future . So I'll let somebody else initiate a thread like that .

    We are getting off track here

     

      Then stop instigating us , and feeding the fire . You know fcking well that is what you are doing . 

      By continually intentionally provoking people with your vain and egotistic comments . You are Knowingly disrespecting the OP far worse than our human nature to respond . Many times I may answer  not realizing the thread that the outrageous comment that I am responding to is in . 

      You stop . We stop .

    ..............................................................................................................................................................

      The above was me at very volatile moment . Comments that were just a release of built up anger that was completely unrelated to the topic or WGT .. 

      " Many times I may answer  not realizing the thread that the outrageous comment that I am responding to is in "..

        This is true too . Scanning my emails and I see one with a partial comment . Read the last one or two posts and reply . Without regard for OP topic as with everyone else commenting at that time .

      I won't be practicing that anymore . Nice to learn something from all that .

    Actually, I reported abuse when I voiced my concerns on page 1.

     

      Something else I learned . Wow . Talk about the whole kitchen calling the kettle black .
