Word of the day: hubris

As I listened to members of the gop talk about their "oh so wonderful" tax bill, this word cane to mind. 

This definition from Wikipedia is especially salient:

Hubris (/ˈhjuːbrɪs/ from ancient Greek ὕβρις) describes a personality quality of extreme or foolish pride or dangerous overconfidence,[1]often in combination with (or synonymous with) arrogance.[2] In its ancient Greek context, it typically describes behavior that defies the norms of behavior or challenges the gods, and which in turn brings about the downfall, or nemesis, of the perpetrator of hubris.

We need to get over ourselves and do more. 



Short. Sweet. To the point. That's the beauty Dave's iPhone.

The lame list

I can put up with differing points of view, but be prepared to defend your premise; don't just throw something out there without supporting evidence.

And don't bother even starting a conversation if you doubt science, believe in flat earth, doubt the moon landing, or just generally believe in fairytales.

Keep an open mind and maybe get off the internet once in a while....
