57. Nothing surprises me any more.

We all start from our own personal references. Communication is bridging the gap between your personal references and theirs.

Frankly, I'm surprise that communication ever succeeds. LOL!

Maybe I prefer the written medium best because there's a record left behind that people can't deny. With verbal conversation it's too easy to find wiggle room from one conversation to the next, one person to the next

And you're right. If people want to claim that skinny is a predisposed genetic disposition, then you can say the same thing about obesity. Especially when many fat people can claim they hardly eat anything at all and still can't lose weight.
