have any of you gotten in trouble for trying to go deeper on a geeky topic with someone?
I had the time of my life when I was in undergrad + grad school. I enjoyed going to office hours and asking questions above and beyond the course material. I'm a big fan of the scientific method and really enjoy consuming content thats uses it. However, I often find myself a bit frustrated by others who make bold claims about ideas and then invoke scientific jargon.
Some things I've heard from others:
"It's scientifically proven that unless you constantly change lanes you'll always be in the slowest lane"
"All toll lanes are terrible. I did all the research and collected all the data over the years."
"9/11 was deliberately caused by the US government. How do I know? It's backed by evidence "
I find myself wanting to probe deeper for more details (specific references, resources online, the name of the proof, etc.) which often leads down a path where they're defensive, mad and then the friendship becomes really strained.
Questions for all:
Have you ever encountered similar situations?
How did you handle it?
What do you recommend doing going forward?
