"Passing On the Dim Torch" (Ranting...)

I remember when I was in my mid-twenties (23-26), I would see an older person (40's, 50's, etc.) and think "You're on the way down - now it's my turn...".  Fast forward three decades and I'm (in my fifties) having some very frustrating/irritating encounters with people in their mid-twenties.  Whether they're right or they're wrong, they are always (to themselves) Right by virtue of being Wonderful and Young.  When they're right, I try to recognize it and kind of shake my head at myself, thinking: "Try not to be too rigid...", but when they are Very Clearly Wrong, their arrogance and General Nastiness are no joy to behold.

The older I get, the more amazed I am at how Truly Amazingly Stupid so many people are, and - being a humanoid biped myself, I realize I'm not exempt from this criticism.  Humans appear not to be equipped with much in the way of CPU power....
