Ready, fight!

I had this conversation with a couple of tourists the other day: > Them: Hi -- you were sleeping? Me: (umm.. was that a question?) No. Them: Yes, you were sleeping. Me: Uh... no, I wasn't. Them: Yes, you were. Me: You're free to believe whatever you want to believe.

And people wonder why I stay in my room so much.

I don't like to argue about anything factual -- I typically end arguments by telling people to look it up on Google. Either they are wrong, or I am wrong, but no amount of arguing is going to change the outcome. Unfortunately, Google doesn't know (yet) whether I was sleeping, and in any case, the (lack of) internet speed here is a big barrier to casual Google use.
