Look, if you're between the ages of 25 - 50 and in the course of a discussion, you try to suggest I have only read one or two books on some subject or another, I'm going to verbally abuse you. I have tried to be patient with certain folks and that patience has been exhausted.
If I have only read one or two books on a subject, I will tell you. If you want to know my source material or where the basis of my thoughts spring, again: ask me and I will tell you.
If you, on the other hand, pull some "you're under 30 years of age and therefore utterly ignorant" bullshit with me, I will turn you into verbal mincemeat for fun and then maybe point 12 pissed off kids in your direction, so they can troll you until you never engage in that behavior again. It isn't just disrespectful: it's obnoxious. Believe me, I can easily cite you to death if I know you're wrong. And I really will joyously do it. I prefer not to, however.
Caveat lector: if you've only actually read one or two books, there is no harm in admitting it. Helpful individuals will point you in the direction of work or works that may be beneficial to you.
(Why did I add that image to this entry? Largely because later tonight I might use the picture VVF found of Bruce Lee as a Green Lantern, in a bit of commentary.)
