I even remember how to do molar conversions and still understand valence electron configuration!

This whole series applies double and in spades to the IT field. It's rife with incompetents.

Something else I always keep in mind is the difference between "dialectic" (reasonable, logical discussion) and "rhetoric" (strictly emotional).

You watch the history channel too?

You must be super up to date with the latest theories about the alien sasquatches who built atlantis!

I have tried explaining this to my parents- IQs of ~115 and ~120 respectively- and they can't understand it or don't want to hear it. The conversation devolves into anecdata within a minute.

Maybe if the WSJ gave me a soapbox they would understand. Ah well, that's family for ya.
