    The subset is the guy/girl that will ask your advice and when your advice disagrees with what they want to do, they will keep asking people until someone agrees with them. Then they will say, "That's what I thought." And they will do what they originally intended anyway. Even if everyone else tells them it is wrong.

    It doesn't seem to be necessary to ask for advice any longer. We all live in our own private little worlds and a large public world at the same time. I read Survival Monkey, Rawles, Zero Hedge, Woodpile Report, etc, the next person watches MSNBC, listens to NPR, has his liberal church with its sanctuary policies and lives in his liberal neighborhood and has his Facebook "friends". With the modern decentralized media we all can live in our own private worlds and have hundreds of "friends" who will give us the advice that we want to hear and the question is not the advice, but filtering out the BS from the advice. We are sent to schools in which the content is selected by others, live in communities with building codes, zoning rules, food safety codes, EPA. BLM, etc and think we can ask or take their advice and use it to make rational decisions. I try to keep a low profile, give advice when I think it will help someone and look for the advice I think will help.. The problem is not giving or receiving advice, it is filtering the wheat from the chaff and the advice from the propaganda and tools used to control my life. I haven't quite figured out how to do that yet and look to this and other sources I select to get "advice" that helps me try to make sense of all the screaming noise around me being supplied as advice.

    I know a few of them. Now when they ask me for advice, I give them a bunch of crap. Most of them dont ask me anymore.

    People don't ask me for advice either. My friend shared the picture and I thought it funny.

    What is advice?
    My grandson told me he was going to shoot a ground hornets nest last year.
    I told him, Go ahead

    He decided against it!
