I have a good friend at work that some of you may know. I call him Billbur, and he's a fellow rennie and a lot of fun.
Kolchak: the Night Stalker. He swore it was The Night Stalker, no Kolchak. I kept insisting that I was right, even specifying the colon in the name. Finally, he looked on Google, and guess who was right.
I tried to explain to him that I don't argue about facts unless I know I'm right. I've had this discussion before, and am usually misunderstood. It's not that I think I'm always right. In fact, the opposite is true. My memory is so bad, that I am usually unsure of my facts, so I won't argue about dates, names or trivia because I assume I'm remembering wrong. The only way I will insist that I'm right is if I KNOW I am right. In this case, I had just watched the show on DVD and could picture the DVD case in my hand. Besides, it's a family favorite, and we've called it Kolchak: the Night Stalker since the 70s.
I guess it's easier for me to argue facts than opinions. For who is to say that I'm right and you are wrong? You might see merits in a book that I miss or it might strike a chord with you where it didn't with me. So, I'll just say (this time at least) that it was pretty good, and leave it at that.
