I agree - when you're pissed about something, it seems so much more
important - breaking it down, understanding it, seeing what makes it tick
and what doesn't. Plus, you can almost taste it when something sounds
right... granted, while anger does wonders for your powers of
pontification, it doesn't do too well for your listening prowess. Bit of a
trade-off there.
