Fat and black are easy enough to spot, so if you don't like them, keep away. Retards are not so easy to distinguish. They may at first sight appear to be much brighter than they eventually prove to be. Because retardation is more a question of progress and capacity than immediate appearance it is often only as a result of the anger that one realises the cause of the predicament, one of the most frequent mistakes in life being to assume that others are much the same as oneself, meaning just what we would mean in a given situatation, with some sort of purpose assumed. That is where the anger comes from, the false understanding of how an expression is meant. With a correct understanding the anger goes. Nobody blames a worm for its lack of intellect. It is possible to live with somebody for many years before fully appreciating their strengths and weaknesses in these respects, and only then does the crisis arrive. The error may also occur with social institutions. It took me many years to realise just how stupid politicians really are, what a waste the anger is because they just don't know how to do better to save their own lives. --- Ron.
