Judging Extremism

I often find it difficult to differentiate between genius and idiocracy. The averages are easy but outliers are truly a sight to behold. If you've ever seen "The Usual Suspects" or Dennis Rodman, then you know exactly what I mean.

This phenomena extends far beyond intelligence and truly applies to all aspects of life. In most instances, you only get but a glimpse and instinctively, a decision is made.

Imagine yourself walking in the wilderness ... a beautiful river running through a sage old forest ... air so fresh it brings back thoughts of better days ... and reminds us we're alive ... for those who sometimes forget.

Time. It changes so quickly, so effortlessly. And yet the changes are forever, irreversible.

It's impossible to tell what time will bring, but in this instance, in the sanctity of this forest, change comes in the form of a sound. A shreak so desperate it touches you to your very core. A shreak so powerful it almost brings you to your knees.
