When I was younger and didn't know better, I used to ridicule things that were new and strange to me. We hate what we don't know, yeah? My reaction was often of disdain and pride in an effort to make myself feel superior, what for--I have no idea. I would make fun of something I didn't understand, I would point out how something sounded so stupid--all because I was too proud to admit that I didn't understand it. Complex matters that seemed stupid, I would write off as nonsense. I'd like to think I've gotten over this ignorance.
