Sometimes progress comes as a result of painful experiences; sometimes it comes through a spiritual awakening; sometimes it comes through technology.
In the past it was important for me to always be right, since I didn't have a sober or valid leg to stand on. In the midst of an argument, I'd grab the encyclopedia, look up the topic, and prove I was right by slamming it on the table, saying, "So there!"
Now that I've developed a bit spiritually, and understand that I don't need to be right, a little modern technology has come to my aid. Somehow it's not as satisfying winning...
