  1. Nice, I like your style, tackling the big issues first! Also said egomania is also common in 1st yr Poli Sci students who think they can fix the world & achieve global peace and 1st year Psych students who think that everyone’s mind is but a mere plaything to be toted with.

  2. Thanks man, I appreciate it! Cheers for reading. Yep I know about those particular brands of narcissism, I study Pols too… I should probably get around to actually writing this About section thing.
