    You’re just flattering yourself—it takes far more to hurt my feelings.

    If you believe the moon landing wasn’t faked, then we have no issues.

    I knew it - there's more than one moon and NASA is hiding the other ones!

    I agree with those who said that stupidity should be ridiculed and not accepted as a "valid opinion."

    No, not impressive at all. In fact, tragically sad.

    Why would someone else's joy bring you so much unhappiness?

The watch may even be worth more at that point.

    For that reason, the seamaster line takes the cake and will be my next purchase. At least they are honest about Flemming's James Bond being completely fake.

    Thoughts?

    Because the deadly instability of our planet is rooted in ignorance and deceit, not in truth and enlightenment. So anything that perpetuates the ignorant, uneducated status quo causes me unhappiness … as it should any intelligent, educated person.

    There continues to be widespread celebration and defense of ignorance. The perpetrators genuinely believe they don’t fall under such category, unable to recognize they’re under the influence of the Dunning-Kruger effect. Then there are those whose view is so diminutive that they believe widespread ignorance doesn’t effect them or the policies by which their lives are governed, and so they wonder why anyone should be unhappy about other’s ignorance.

    You’re suggesting it’s OK to find joy in ignorance and stupidity.
