19. I was unfortunate enough to be raised by a redneck....

from the back woods of Winston Salem. He and his brothers would sit around and talk about "dropping the bum" among other things that made no logical sense. The women would sit in the kitchen and talk about getting their "har" done and how badly their kids were failing in school. When they looked at my mom she told them that I made great grades, which made my mom and I outcasts. She and I simply didn't fit in with their "norm".

Sometimes being an outcast is a good thing.

Anyway, he would yell at me for reading Byte magazine (back when it was actually written by engineers), or would imply that something was wrong with me for not being interested in sports. Basically he didn't like what he couldn't understand.

I understand the world of the stupid very well as a long term observer. They are ruled by their emotions and their genitalia. Their sense of pride comes from the kind of car that they drive, how much they can drink, or what their drinking buddies think of them.

All in all they are a very sad bunch, but easily led by the vile spew that the republican party pumps out.
