According to Richman, it was just now hitting him how many hours of his life he's pissed away listening intently to nonsense about celebrity couples, how good or bad certain pens are, and why a particular sports team might have a chance this year. The husband and father of two said that every time he's felt at all put out or bored by a bullshit conversation—especially a speculative one about how bad allergy season was going to be—he should have just turned around, walked away, and gone rafting or repelling or done any of the millions of other things he's always wanted to do but never thought he had time for.


That's how he's defining being tolerant and respectful of other people's opinions? Celebrity gossip, pens and sports teams? Gee - the guy sounds really deep.

He's also about to turn 40. Time for the little boy to grow up.

But then... it's the Onion.
