In all honesty Eric, if you showed just a little less interest, you could drag yourself down to my level.
Or is it too late for that?

How silly of both myself and the thread starter, the answer is in the title, no wonder he got the reception he did?
He claims his talk is for most "social groups", that covers a large audience but since when have we been social?
It's our fault not his.

If that's what appeals I'd recommend having a read.

Definitely will check it out. One guy to check out for his personal bravery is Charles Hazlitt Upham, VC and Bar. Came across him about 10 yrs. ago when I was surfing the net, stoned out of my gourd.

I hope you don't mind me asking, but what is odd about your talks? Is it your choice of words? Your subject matter? Do you stand on your head when delivering the talk? Do you talk through the back of your head? Just wondering??
