nothing to see here

I love people who are religious about saving the environment, who also have a mansion consuming enough electricity to power a small car factory.

Just thought I'd share.

it feels stupid to ask stupid questions

Even if you have every excuse not to know the answer. Like if I'm talking to a person I just met who is from Sudan, I won't know the most basic things about their country or culture or anything. And frankly, I have ever reason not to know, because I've never met anyone from Sudan, I've never taken a class on Sudan, I've never read a book about Sudan. But if I meet a person from Sudan, I'll feel like an idiot asking what language they speak or what religion they have. Because if someone asked me that about my country, I would look at them funny. You're supposed to know those things. Yet sometimes you have no way of knowing.
