What do you think about opinions? Everyone has them. We tend to love our own don't we? Nowadays the ability to broadcast our opinion to others is enormous. With the internet, social media, comments, blogs and so on... We get to say a whole lot of stuff. But let's put opinion in perspective. Some very smart people have said some very stupid things over the years. ~ Opinions that they really believed.
"Two years from now spam will be solved." ~ Bill Gates 2004.
"I don't need a bodyguard." ~ Jimmy Hoffa.
"It doesn't matter what he does, he will never amount to anything." Albert Einsteins teacher.

What we say can turn out to be brilliant, banal, or blithering idiocy.
But when all is said and done - It's just our opinion.
