<< Guess what, there's always going to be people
who disagree, and to the guy who was afraid I'd "smother" his movement with
my "pessimism", I say, WAKE UP! Guess what, the future won't be that much
fun. >>

Ok, . . .

1. You are pessimistic. You admit it. You love it.

2. You are not even realistic, but admit to be far into pessimism (which is
not being realistic). In fact, I think _even_ being so called "realistic" is
still being pessimistic because improvement is given up on.

3. You say you "know" the future, the "real" future not just imagined?
That's more than I can say. How are you doing that. Fill me in on your new
future-predictive technology.

4. You think the future will not be all that much fun? Do you still want
to see the future then? Why should you? You like pessimism and want to see
your pessimistic future come true? Are you working to bring about a more
pessimistic future so you prediction is vindicated?

Please show me why I have misinterpreted you.

Dynamically Optimistic,
