    A woman and a gentleman lawyer are seated next to each other on a flight from Los Angeles to New York. The lawyer asks if she would like to play a fun game. The woman, tired, just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun.

    He says, “I ask you a question, and if you don’t know the answer, you pay me five dollars, and vice versa.” Again, she declines and tries to get some sleep.The lawyer, now agitated, says, “Okay, if you don’t know the answer, you pay me $5, and if I don’t know the answer, I will pay you $500.”This catches the woman’s attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment, agrees to the game. The lawyer asks the first question: “What’s the distance from the earth to the moon?” The woman doesn’t say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a $5.00 bill, and hands it to the lawyer. “Okay,” says the lawyer, “your turn.” She asks, “What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?” The lawyer, puzzled, takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references … no answer. He taps into the air phone with his modem and searches the Internet and the Library of Congress … no answer. Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and coworkers but to no avail. After an hour, he wakes the woman and hands her $500. The woman thanks him and turns back to get some more sleep. The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, stirs the woman and asks, “Well, what’s the answer?”

    Without a word, the woman reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep.

    I just have no time for folks who are contrary on purpose. Life is hard enough without being deliberately mean. In a world where you can be anything you want, be kind. It costs $0.00 to be a decent human being.

    Sorry for devolving into -isms, but they are absolutely true.

    I Sometimes do things like that …carefully. If I know someone who is very thoughtful and responsible but holds a political view different from mine, I’ll challenge them to get an idea how someone that has a very different view from mine arrived at that view (that only works on people not prone to excitable or angry responses).

    There was somebody like him in my college Ethics class. He’d wait to see what direction the consensus was heading, then begin making contrary arguments. He had no consistent viewpoint, he just liked to argue. A few years later he was on the city council and acted the same way.

    Ideology leads to “ideological purity,” purity by nature is extreme, and extremism leads to absurdity.

    If you try to argue with an extremist from the opposite extreme, you’re probably both wrong.

    I actually knew a guy like that when I was in the Navy.

    With a bit of careful rhetorical maneuvering, you could actually get him to argue in favor of Both Sides during the same argument.
