Add this to your favorite quotes

I'm currently reading "Cryptonomicon" by Neal Stephenson and came across this one:

"Arguing with anonymous strangers on the Internet is a sucker's game because they almost always turn out to be—or to be indistinguishable from—self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time."

Arguing with Giddy-up is like hitting yourself on the head, repeatedly, with a hammer - it feels sooooo good to stop.

"Especially when you haven't a fucking clue about what you're talking about and LOSE every argument, right, John?"

No. Can't say I've had that experience. What's it like?
