>Perception is a convenience store


A riposte so fine, I had to share, ‘Lady, I know I’m in jeans and you’re all throwing that scarf around over your suit, but two years of blogging has left me pretty confident that my thought is rigorous’.

(From, here)

Perception is the squalid, little corner store you know since childhood, where the old man, now long dead, stood smiling behind a bright counter pouring free chappies into your clammy hands. You know the store so well now, you serve yourself in its dingy recesses only to learn that the currency of pompous prejudice is least likely to get you out of there alive.

For instance, i am prejudiced against obscurantism and stupidity, and i think everyone should be.
