On Generalizing, Generally - Part 1


I just enjoyed this Malcolm Gladwell article linked by Lefty Grrrrl on her blog (thanks for sharing, Lefty). It's from The New Yorker.

In the category of "I Learned Something New Today," the article taught me this:

I like unwrapping. I love surprises. I love Pinky!

Pinky:
Please place bow down there so that I can unwrap it with my teeth and then wrap it around you.

I love surprises!

I can hardly wait to see what it looks like!

I love surprises!
I really do!

Believe me, I hate to be the voice of reason, but I think it was just a poll. Not a binding contractual agreement.

You are not the voice of reason. You are buzzkill.
