I don't have so many opinions any more.

I used to have many, I'm sure.

These days, I just find you typically don't know enough to be too judgemental.

Is this something closer to wisdom, accepting the limits of your knowledge?
Is it the mental fragility of old(er) age?
Or am I just becoming apathetic?



Do you have another opinion?

Oh my god, I just had an opinion.

It feels weird, frankly.

Like a big rock emerging from a lake of tranquility.

That's assuming you are not in a pantomime and already dressed as the front or back part of an Ass...

My Accountant boss used to say that all the time and I came soooo close to hitting him each and every time...

“These days, I just find you typically don't know enough to be too judgemental.”

Opinions are good maybe you have hit your threshold for a while and just want to get on with life but you will return to question and challenge you beliefs and views at some point. Many of us are happy with our lot and go on day to day about our business and enjoying what we have, other people want to understand why, looking for answers and should ask “why am I here”?. Individuals then feel they want to express there point of view and challenge what is around them, some people making things worse but hopefully making it better. Opinions lead to ideas, creativity, and developments in our world. We should challenge and question what is going on around us that’s my opinion

Opinions should be viewed as nothing more than pabulum and entertainment for the intellect. Taking them too seriously - believing in them – is the first step down the road to infecting them with that deadliest of poisons: truth.

Yeah, but within that you can still have opinions that operate within certain assumptions.

That's how I always saw it anyway.

I try not to get too reactionary.

I would like to put-down all non-practical dogs though. :D

I have opinions when I'm drunk but during the mundane patches of the day I usually sit with my lips pursed shut and my mind off in a happier place, so i guess I probably seem vacant..

True, and I end up looking like quite a fool.

No, younger people feel that way aswell.
