I’m not always the sharpest tool in the shed, but there’s a few things I know a lot about. Last Saturday I was at a party and some guy started talking to me saying he was a bodybuilder and noticed I worked out and was wondering why I was eating pork if I wanted to be healthy. I asked him why he wouldn’t eat an animal humans had been eating for over 7,000 years and he answered with the typical, ‘pigs are dirty’. Anyways, turns out the only animals he eats are chickens. Talk about calling the kettle black.
I didn’t go into how chickens are grown in an 8.5 by 11 inch cage, pumped up with drugs and killed after 6 seeks to 3 months, etc and basically just smiled at his smug better than me look as I devoured some lovely ribs.
So, my question is how how do you lot handle situations where you know tons more than the moron you’re talking to? I know most of us won’t offer advice in the gym, but what about normal everyday events?
