Ask A Genius 180 – Political Movements (Part 6)

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

May 27, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: Those women, who are giving relatively obvious discretionary notes, except those not obvious to a few people.

Rick Rosner: My favourite mother-in-law-splaining story is where we are at a coffee shop with the family. Coffee shop has one of those menus. It has a lot of stuff. There are a lot of items and a lot of pages.

Looking at the menu, she is looking at the menu and says this is something I wouldn’t know or wouldn’t have noticed, “They have sandwiches.” I mean come on.

Jacobsen: [Laughing] I wouldn’t be bent out of shape about it. [Laughing] I could start up a Twitter account, be uptight, and make a joke about it as a discretionary note.

Rosner: Imagine if you were married to somebody who explained at you, stuff that you knew all of the time.

Jacobsen: I would try to work on my own issues first, rather than theirs.

Rosner: I don’t know.

Jacobsen: What’s the old wisdom? You can’t change people. 

Rosner: That’s true, but you can at least note it and tweet about it because it is interesting, maybe, or funny if you can take the right angle on it.
