yes. you hit the nail right on the head

that's the old lowbrow/highbrow distinction-- which keeps getting cancelled but always keeps returning anyway

I don't really need to dig deeper into areas with so little potential when there are so many other more rewarding or interesting rabbit holes in the world.

(that same transaction is happening to a 12 year old right now)
