People often accuse me of being argumentative on facebook. I’m not going to argue with that. I am. Arguments are the best way to provoke people into teaching you the most interesting and useful information. You want to get a free education on anything? Find somebody who knows more about it than you do and start making claims about it, you will get educated! The best part is that in an argument, the person is genuinely motivated to present a full explanation of why you are wrong and they are right. Sometimes they’ll give you reading assignments for further information, but if you don’t want to read it yourself you just say so and they’ll recap the important points for you. Good luck finding a university lecturer who’ll put that much effort into your education.
You want to the best way to get wine stains out of carpet? Go on a cleaning forum and say it is peanut butter. I guarantee you’ll not only learn why it isn’t peanut butter, you’ll learn the top five best methods for different kinds of wine as well. You’ll get a far more thorough response than if you were to just ask.
