Yup, pure drivel may sound good, but is maximally unpleasant.

One of the things I stopped doing is reading Dilbert now that I'm retired and no longer living in the Dilbert documentary. It is very nice not to have to put up with all those sociopaths in the workplace.

My ambition is to someday read Dilbert and not "get it". I figure if I live to 90 I'll be successful - for a number of reasons.

Aw c'mon, that's an unfair characterization of some of us posters. Wally did say he tried listening once!

That Scott Adams has some real insight - funny guy.

What a relief! Some of the strips are funny as heck, but I just "don't get" at least 60% of the Dilbert comics! Ignorance must be bliss!
