Bathroom Monologue: Was This Helpful?

It can be very difficult for young people to grasp the difference between fact and opinion, the divide between emotion and objectivity. There is an exercise to help understand this crucial difference. Create a list of the ten best films of all time. Carefully review each entry, and make sure they are ordered, so that #1 is the best film of all time, descending to the tenth best. Got it? Now if your list contained anything you actually liked, you don't know what you're talking about, so turn off your computer and quit pretending you have a future in the movie business.
