I know I'm certainly not the most intelligent person on these forums, and I'm thankful for that; however, I'm experiencing in my life, once again, a realization of the price I pay for being intelligent. I enjoy debating, and, unfortunately, I offend people when I do so because I often present my ideas in a haughty manner. However, this is because some things are easy issues to deal with. I mean, I've been viewing forums lately where people think being against gay marriage is as legitimate as being against racism. Personally, I used to have three forums I enjoyed posting at, but then I had only two. However, I've lost interest in one because it lacks intellectual stimulation (not this one). I guess, although I like debating, perhaps I'm just looking for people to agree with me; however, I don't think that's the case. I want left-wing people logical enough to discuss issues that other people can't. I mean, a certain amount of common ground has to exist to have an enjoyable debate, in my opinion. This is the only forum that I've debated and had my mind changed on an issue. Basically, I'm not sure what to do with my life, and I'm looking for suggestions. I read, but that gets boring after awhile, and I live in a small town so intellectual stimulation is lacking. And there is something about face-to-face contact that is better than the Internet. However, as I'm trying to overcome depression, I want to solve some problems that I deal with and have always dealed with in some manner or another. So, suggestions? I can be alone more than I used to be - should I continue this path and become dependent to the point that I don't need intellectual stimulation in person or is that even possible? Bah, I guess I'm just bored and frustrated and looking for a place to rant. I'll accept any kind of response, but I'd prefer advice. Thanks a lot, and, even though my knowledge and skill in physics is mediocre at best, these forums are a great place to hang out and confirm that there are people in this world with intelligence.
