13. Did you ever notice...

Some people have trouble distinguishing fiction from reality?

Even if his point were true (which it isn't), all that does is tell you that screenwriters have presented it that way. It says nothing about actual reality.

One of the worst books I have ever read was "State of Fear" by Michael Crichton. The bad guys in it are laughable eco-terrorists. Crichton was a right wing tool who argued against climate change and wrote a book with awful strawmen characters just so he could show the world how bad they were. What a hack that guy was.

So, Ted... you cannot distinguish between reality and fiction? Zoonart Feb 2021 #1
