MacWorld was, as always, an experience. There are a number of groups or classifications to which I belong that are occasionally sources of discomfort; I’m proud to be a Mac user, but some Mac users are just so frelling nuts that I’m embarrassed to count myself among their numbers. I often feel that way about watching Star Trek or Buffy, as long as I’m on the subject.
Why do people feel the need to turn an interest into an obsession? Why do some of them push obsession to the brink of religion? Why can’t I ever write a sequence of quasi-rhetorical questions without ending in a lame joke?
I really need more of a background in psychology. People just don’t make sense.
