Top 10 Resources
First of all, I cannot just start what I was going to talk to them about, because they specifically asked for "new" information. This means that before I tell them anything, I need to run the information through a spot in my brain I call the "masher" - a personal grinding, mashing, and separating area. A perfectly good thought can go through the masher and come out completely obscured, senseless, and dissected like an insect in science class.
It's a shame really. I can be quite brilliant and entertaining if given some free range with what I am going to tell you. You may not listen to a word I say, or you might be drawn in. One problem I have is with tangents. If I encounter a listener who doesn't have all the knowledge about some subject that I am referring to, I will try to explain what it is that I feel that they don't understand. After a while of following sidetracks, I will completely lose track of whatever point I had originally been trying to make. One conversation that began with talking about rabbits' feet ended up a conversation about certain cancers.
Anyway, I'm sure I had a point to this, when I started, but see what I mean? I simply cannot talk about any particular subject without going off on a tangent. So, I guess I'll give in to myself.
The following are the top 10 resources on tangents:
