A short word of advice

When you attend a lecture of an erudite nature, it does not behoove you to use movies such as Groundhog Day* as an example to prove a point. Sure, the movie might raise some philosophical/moral/ethical questions, but unless you can make your point eloquently without going on and on and on about how brilliant the movie is, most people will look at you as if you’ve gone round the bend.

*not that I am in any way, shape or form criticizing this movie, because we all know that Bill Murray is a genius.

I had the same thoughts recently when a seminar leader whipped out a clip from Sister Act to make a point.
