Funny.

You writers are all the same!

I'm just a nerdy engineer and nerdy engineers are too linear to discuss a heady topic such as this.

That's a generalization. The actual fact that is that many nerdy engineers are busy playing Halo 2 this week so they don't have much time to comment. This won't last long.

I never generalize.

OMG Carmi, I needed a laugh... thank you.

My 2 cents worth... I have to generalize I am in sales! However I feel that I generalize in a more individually focused manner... ha ha ha

Generalization. It gets a bad rap. Yeah, yeah, you do it and some times it blows up in your face. But consider the alternative. Each and every thing that comes along, you have to consider it for its individual merit. You can't just say, "Oh, it's snowing! Snow is pretty!" No, you have to think, "Is this snow pretty? Will this snow cause an accident? Freeze a dog? Cause an old person to slip and fall? Or maybe this snow is bringing in a new age! This snow could cause someone to realize that life is beautiful all around him. Oh but wait, 'life is beautiful' is another generalization! Maybe if someone did realize that, it would be worse for them because then they would be generalizing!"

So what the hell are you saying, Oz? People who rant about generalizatioins and assumptions are foolish. We couldn't exist without them. How's that for a generalization?!

Ack. my brain is locked in the loop of who saying everyone generalizes is a generalization. most go view adult material on internet to stop thinking.
