Endearing Ignorance

It was awhile ago when I was talking with a couple people about how inexpensive RAM was getting. One of the others said, "Oh yes, and Memory is getting cheap too."

I looked over at the other person and he smile at me. He admitted later that he couldn't bring himself to straighten out the fact that Memory is RAM. I couldn't either. It was too great.

And so, a few days ago, when I asked a young lady how big her JumpDrive was, she looked at me blankly and said, "About this big."

"About This Big"

Jason and I burst into laughter. He said, "That is ignorance that is endearing."


I love that girl even more now.

Granted, my question was vague. I could have asked, "What is the capacity in Gigabytes of your Flash drive?" However, had I done that, I wouldn't have had this blog to write about. And that would be sad.

The point to take away from this is that we are all ignorant about a great many things. If you find yourself outside "the loop" about something, ask. Or, if you're among friends, do your best to join in. You just may endear yourself to them more. Do not be one of those know-it-alls who pushes people away. It won't score you any points with those with whom you work.

Ps. Jason also took a stab at Photoshopping the image, so I felt I needed to post it. His taste has more color. So, for your viewing pleasure:

Your picture looks as though you were simulating a bleach bypass. High contrast, sucked Saturation, a little grainy.

Just thought I would say that.
