I stupidly allowed myself to get sucked into an argument with a guy claiming there was never a space program and it's all been smoke and mirrors since the 60s. He kept rebutting my arguments with claims that all opinions are equal and that there's, "always another side to the coin".
I hired two guys to carpet my mom’s house three years ago and somehow we got into a conversation about whether the earth was round or flat. One of the guys insisted that the earth was flat and quoted Bible verses he said proved that. So I asked him if the moon and other satellites orbited around the earth. Completely confused him. He did a great job laying the carpet but I was worried for a while.You'd think after so long on the internet I could just ignore that sort of thing...
That's always been my motivation to run... that when the time comes I need to be able to do it. Every time I run, since I was a kid, the first image my mind conjures is being chased by armed apes on horseback.
