The Snob Horizon

firebus's picture

I collect snobberies.

I like knowing what makes some things high-quality and other things crappy (it's different for every kind of thing), and being able to distinguish the subtle differences between the two.

However, the traits that distinguish good from bad are arbitrary and, like fashion, are often cyclic and based on class/expense rather than any intrinsic measure of quality in the snobbed object.

This is why it's important to avoid going below the snob horizon: If having high-quality widgets is so important for you that you can no longer derive any pleasure from perfectly good low-quality widgets, then you've gone over the edge. Please come back. We miss you.
