Ya hang around with smart, ya get smart.

In relating a memory to my 2nd eldest kid yesterday, this thought and resultant lesson reoccurred to me after many years.

I feel epitomizes the vast majority of discussion boards in The Fool neighborhood.

The vast majority of people in The Fool neighborhood.



Figured this board and this thread was as good as any to point this out.

I spent a very short time here back in 2000.

Then, I decided to revisit and have remained since early last year. In this short time, there is no doubt that I have benefited in many ways on many levels having become a part of The Fool neighborhood. Hey, every village needs an idiot, right? I once heard the top rank for idiot is jester. That'd be cool. And, consider the irony and our name.

What's a neighborhood. People. Notably, the Fool has a much higher concentration of wise and often wonderful sharing souls. Wisdom. Ya gotta love it.

So, it would stand to reason -- Ya hang around with wise, ya get wise.

Damn, I hope so.

lookin' forward,
