You know how people tell you that there are certain topics never to be discussed among “polite company”?
I don’t get that.
“Just remember, we never discuss combustion, or split-second decisions, in polite company. That’s the received wisdom. Avoid those issues or people will think you’re a boor.”
“Really? Those are the two forbidden topics?”
“Yes – they make people uncomfortable.”
“Dang. Because the house is on fire, and we all need to get out NOW!”
