Imagine if this group could be co-ordinated to utilize its vast array of individual expertise for a consulting business. The diversity of knowledge and expertise around here is pretty strong. There aren't too many 'everday' problems in life that couldn't be resolved by someone who is a member here. I'm not suggesting it be tried, just pointing out how this mixed bag of opinions has as much knowledge as a lot of professional problem solving outfits when you add up the sum of the parts.

As my grade three teacher told me early in life, everyone is an expert at something.

The difficulty would be establishing credentials and generating consensus.

Pangloss, we could establish a position called Director of Credentials and Consensus. I think you would be perfect. See, we're already on our way to solving problem one.

What's missing of course is any semblance of objectivity. Contributors feel passionately about what they contribute and our passions are of course the engine of modern advertising, flopiganda...propaganda that's one flavor one day but opposite the next...and the barometer of our scales of values and convictions.

Someone here at CC mentioned the "digital" nature of modern communications, a gesture acknowledging the consumers conditioned-to 30 sec. attention span...

We're all additionally expected to simply swallow all the lies and misdirection of everyone from Jean Chretien and Paul Martin to George Bush and Henry Kissinger.....from Al Gore and David Suzuki to ...

We afford the statements that come from "reliable sources" truth while disparaging the process of logical thought ....it's difficult to (and intentionally designed for that reason) to percolate sympathy or even alternative perspectives from the "media" when the snot nosed spoiled brats like Paris Hilton and Conrad Black and the minutae of a media sculpted to limit thought and consideration is replete with double-talk and lies.

One person submits facts and figures then someone else points out that those facts and figures come from ...the Liberal Left Wing camp....or the Neo-Con Status Quo camp....so the facts are lost and only the sizzle gets through....

We don't like answers and really don't want answers...we want affirmation of our beliefs and support for our opinions and biases....

Little "brilliance" here I'm afraid....

Phew! Thank goodness for MikeyDB. Geez, we almost had some humor going there! That would have been awful.

Except Mikey, what we see here is only scratching the surface of who members really are. We see their opinions on public issues. There are people on this board with PhD's who primarily express opinions on matters they like to rant about, not what they can teach about. And one need not have a PhD to have a level of expertise in some subject matter.

Sorry Karrie

If I've spoiled the rolicking-good-fun here at CC with my contributions.....

Could you recomend a more focused and thought provoking forum I could go to...

While it's all good fun of course to watch personal spats and exchanges of veiled animosity that provide such high caliber humor here at CC....

I certainly agree with that observation but as Karrie will tell you it's about fun and humor and not really about what anyone feels anyway...

Yes, it is only about fun and humour. As I said, I wasn't suggesting it was a proposal, just an observation of the potential of the sum of the parts.

You're in 'The Lounge' Mikey. You know darn well that plenty of people here engage in intelligent, deep, thought provoking conversation in a wide variety of other fora on this site. Whether you think they are smart or not. Popping into a humorous exchange in The Lounge with your sour remarks on the intellect of the membership just seems, well, pointless. Sorry for making light of it and hurting your feelings so.

No worries Karrie

I frequently forget to make sure that a post listed is taking place in some part of the website that has different rules or altered expectations in terms of what's appropriate and what isn't...

Perhaps we could have in addition to the joke thread, a "sarcasm thread" where people can post their ideas in a tongue in cheek spirit generously iced-over with double entendre and classic innuendo...

Paul, we've already received a number of applications for this position. We're also heavy on Paleoscattologists.

That doesn't matter. If we're becoming consultants we'll be eating cake in no time.

It takes two things to be a consultant - grey hair and hemorrhoids. The grey hair makes you look distinguished and the hemorrhoids make you look concerned.
