Question all which is taught, dig deeper, think clearly, respond. Conformity is the antithesis of free thought and self-determination.

Just how sore is it when you hit yourself with a hammer?

Unfortunately I can answer that question. I was doing a job back in my marine engineering days, taking off a set of hydraulic controls that had been bolted on to the side of this boat's wheelhouse, and I had to break off the old nuts with a hammer and cold chisel. I wasn't paying attention and managed to miss the chisel altogether and hit myself on the back of the hand. Since I had an apprentice with me I ignored the pain so he wouldn't laugh at me, swung the hammer again, and you know what happened ... whacked the back of my left hand again in exactly the same place. I can still remember what that second hammer blow felt like ... and I did it back in 1988.

Thought immediately of John Stuart Mill when I saw that photo btw: "He who lets the world, or his own portion of it, choose his plan of life for him, has no need of any other faculty but the ape-like one of imitation." (Mill, On Liberty, Ch. 3)
