Socrates

Socrates was one strange man. Not everyone can pull off going around town asking questions about what they believe. I know it would get extremely annoying at some point, but you should give him some props on this whole “Asking Business”. I believe he had a ton of courage because he had not a care in the world of what people thought of him. He still asked the jury what they believed that they still had no idea what it meant to be in the jury. He questioned them when he was on the verge of being put to death. He is a crazy man. But I guess you can’t blame him for being so curious, unless he was asking them just to see what they knew, and I’m sure that’s the case in this situation. Socrates was a very wise and unique man in his day of age, and there’s no way you can disagree to that. He was seriously odd, but in a different way. He was maybe the only one that will ever be like him… I hope. You didn’t see Elvis going around being annoying and critical.. Or Elton John, or anyone like that. If you ask me, I think it was a little ridiculous, but I definitely respect the man. After all, he may have been the most courageous man ever, that we know of, and may have possibly been the most annoying, most literal, (but wisest) man ever known to man. EVER.
