Snowflakes in denial

What I don't get is how the Intertubes—which seem to have a tendency to shove the reality of the mind-bending giganticness of the human population down your throat—and special-snowflakeness can be comorbid phenomena. Are they related or developing on separate tracks?

Maybe it’s just because I was younger, but God knows that before the net became everyone’s local pub, I was far less aware of how many people there are out there who are smarter than I am. (See my blogroll for a partial list and also, admittedly, a few amusing exceptions.)

Maybe snowflakeness is a form of denial.
