Back in the old days, the goal was to hypothesize a theory and set out to proving it was correct, therefore moving it from Theorytown and into Fact City Limits.

Now, instead of proving ourselves right, the goal is to prove everyone else wrong before daring to throw a fact into the conversation.

I don’t even like having to cite sources proving what I WANTED to say, much less having to cite the gazillion sources it would take to call out all the bullshit out there.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
