I’m afraid I’m getting a complex … another one, I mean. This one involves these crazy questions that no one seems to be able to answer. And they just keep coming. I can’t get over the fact that these questions have lingered out there for what seems forever, and no one, other than myself, seems to be tortured by that fact. I guess that’s a pretty strong indicator that I need to “get a life”!
On the other hand, questioning the obvious has always been rewarding for me in one way or another so I think I’ll stick with it.
