My wife prefers MTV and Lifetime channel to the real world. So, when she asks me specific questions about current events, history, politics, etc..., I am usually pretty informed. I watch the news, read the papers, listen to NPR (I'm a spy), conservative talk radio. I am a history and politics buff in addition to being a chemistry professor.


My wife will often ask how I might have come across some particular information. Well, it turns out, ARFCOM is waaay to often the answer.

Funny thing is, the ARFCOM reference is actually beginning to recieve credibility in her eyes.

Who else has this experience?

Using nothing more than simple facts thrown out from links given here, I often confound those retards at work who would love to prove me wrong.

Between ARFCOM and drew and mike in the morning, I have two quality sources of news and information.

I say that I read it on the internet. When somebody tells me some libtard statement I ask them in a sneering voice, 'who told you that'?

Yes, even though my post count automatically makes me a , I do find myself quoting ARFCOM almost daily.
