Yes, yes, I'm a freaking idiot. First thing I do, I get in a fight about music tastes, because I'm an ass. However, I'm an apologetic ass, so I'm sorry about it. When you live in a house where you hear Fox News Channel and hardly anything else, it starts to rub off even if you don't want it to. Add to that fact that I'm arrogant as hell, and you're asking for it. However, I like to think that when I take the time to actually think before speaking I have something to say. So we'll see.
