Thoughts

Had some interesting revelations last night:
(1) It's a common stereotype that drummers are usually the least intelligent members of a band. Wondering why this was, I decided that it's because only unintelligent parents would think it was a good idea to buy their children a drum set. Those things are loud. This is a general statement. Of the drummers that I know personally, all are smart and have smart parents... except one.
(2) Be wary of people who are very particular about unimportant things. It's usually a sign that they are only trying to seem like they know what they're talking about.

The connection between these two? None whatsoever.

The origin of the stereotype is the portrayal of "Animal" from The Muppets. Because the X and Y generations grew up watching The Muppets, they now have Jim Henson to thank for their impression of drummers.
