Himalayan Pundits

Mike in Vietnam:
"Over fried squid and a plate of greens, my poor friend had to listen to me rant and rave and theorize and bullshit 'till she was too tired to respond. During the course of the evening, I managed to formulate a Mid-East peace plan, discuss the political climate in Haiti, and quote Aristotle. So yeah, I was talking out my arse. Half the time I didn't even know what I was sayin' but I'm an opinionated man so I just kept on talking. Next time, perhaps my friend shall be wise enough to stick a beer in front of me to shut me up."
This is exactly the kind of nonsense we seemed to find ourselves engaged in every night while trekking. If Tom (the lone conservative) hadn't been along, it would have just been a bunch of preaching to the choir...
