Interesting diagnosis. In fact I am in a low mood, but one engendered  
by the death of a close friend, and hence reflecting on how best to  
use what time I myself have left. And arguing with ignorance isn't it.    (03)

True. I have been waiting for someone to point this out. The obvious  
response, however, is that not all autodidacts are great minds. The  
number of uninformed, cranky, self-opinionated and just plain crazy  
autodidacts overwhelms the very few who have been geniuses. (Myself, I  
love most the ones on the edge, who were both geniuses AND cranky,  
crazy people, such as CS Pierce and Nikolas Tesla; but those are even  
less common than the great minds.)    (05)
