One can come up with a reasonably valid criticism against anything in this world. This includes the previous sentence. When one is aware of this, one merely indulges in picking and choosing what one likes to criticise and leaves out the rest that gives one relatively less entertainment. That's why it is perplexing when somebody else comes along and picks out a criticism, not with the intent of gaining pleasure but to point out a contradiction in one's criticism. With the hope inducing a change in opinion. In which case one is not wrong in assuming that this 'somebody-else' is less self-aware. This pushes the above-mentioned first sentence one more inch closer towards being an exception to itself.
