Well, you have to use your brain and look at things er critically? It don't come, like, easy, like. I am still making the distinction between some idiot shrieking "This is crap because I say so", and the suggestion that "This is crap because, for example, if you look at page 3, para 2, it says, and I quote: 'The war on Iraq was justified by the reports that WMDs were' "

  Oh you know what I mean.
