The host of one of the stupidest television shows in history - Fear Factor - turns out to be a standup comic of surprising intelligence.
Go figure indeed. Joe Rogan, the topic of that article, is certainly intelligent. But even smart people can fool themselves. I have to say, though, that the philosophy he espouses in the article makes some sense... except sometimes there are forces at work against which we must fight. Ignorance, willful or otherwise, is pretty high on that list.
