Kalroy is back! Hmm...I guess I should say "Kalroy is here" instead, since it's funnier. Whatever. Anyway, he's back from his Ultra-Secret Mission that started in January, and he's already calling bullshit on Noam Chomsky.

I missed you, Kal. Welcome back.

He has Chomsky pretty well pegged. In fact, What I've read on Chomsky's blog isn't all that coherent. Perhaps he's an acquired taste--the more you read, the more you want to believe.

Ya mean like sahsimi and poi?

I can understand that. Love 'em both.

Calling bullshit on Chomsky for not knowing the ins and outs of soldering? Wow, what a substantive critique. Surely Kalroy can do better.

Is he calling bs on Chomsky or on the Atlas fellow?!?

Reading the comments I got kinda pissed at Atlas who said

I was calling BS on Atlas for his attitude. Never been an admirer of elitism, not even the working class hero stuff.

As to Chomsky soldering, read it again. I had hoped that I had made my point clear using it as an illustration on how everyone is ignorant about a lot of things. Obviously I should have spent more effort making that clear.

Truth is the more you specialize the more topics you'll be ignorant of/on. I know this quite well having only recently learned what a flexitalic gasket is and that viton smells like cinnamon.
