We've all seen the movies where there's an old man standing on the sidewalk, and holding a sign that reads "The End Is Near," and that has conditioned us to form an idea about those types of people. What if at some point it turns out that those crazy people were right? Could we have saved ourselves some grief by paying attention? Granted; I'm not saying that every crazy person is right, or that there aren't truly crazy people out there, but I would say that making observations isn't a bad thing.
What are your thoughts?
