Not only are you full of crap, you’re full of multiple stacks of crap. You’re full of crap because you don’t know everything and yet you feel justified in telling other people how to live their lives. You’re full of crap because the information you’re sharing with the world comes from apocryphal, if not completely erroneous, sources of information. You’re even full of crap because your home is full of stuff you don’t actually need.

Reacting to a particular evil by painting a whole set of people with the same big brush, also known as profiling, might just be worse than the original evil the painter experienced.
