    Or let's just go back to what Dan said

    "Being into SEX is just kinda a bit... obvious, no?"
    And being into sex in a really obvious way - but a LOT - is not that... interesting. Is it? It's kinda like being an eating champion or something. It's a pure demonstration of the hearty appetites but I'm not sure us sophisticated and decadent dilettantes should be wasting our time caring about it.

    Nah, I agree. I'm just struggling to picture any way in which it could be cool.

    Yeah bad choice of word. I knew it as soon as I wrote it. I just meant... not good I suppose.

    know loads of interesting people but i find that the most interesting ones are also the most difficult to describe or explain to other people.

    Come on Rich, don't pretend you didn't have to pause for a mop-up after typing that.

    my best friend is the smartest person I've ever met, on a wide variety of topics. as a kid, he used to voluntarily hang out for hours in the library! and used to dumpster dive behind the library when they'd replace old volumes. he's like a walking encyclopedia, bring up nearly any topic and he can offer some historic perspective or trivia about it. but the absolute best part is he's the nicest guy, no ego, no sense of superiority, doesn't come off as an annoying know-it-all. he'd be intolerable otherwise! I've known hm since college and he still amazes me with his depth of knowledge.
