    Mandrills monkeys from the rain forest in Africa use the smell of other monkey's poop to determine if they want to avoid the other monkeys or not. This has to do with being able to detect a change in smells due to parasites.

    What criteria do you use (social and otherwise) to decide when you avoid someone ?

    I smell their poop. I mean, that's the universial norm, isn't it?

    Silly as it may sound, I rely on my gut. Rarely have I been wrong.

    How open are you on political views. Do you avoid people that are 100% against gun rights ?

    I don't get angry / avoid people over their PRSI political views but I definitely know some people on here who do :).

    I love the dead before they're cold,
    Their bluing flesh for me to hold.
    Cadaver eyes upon me see
    Nothing.

    Street smarts. Then again being from NYC there is no such thing. Avoiding who and why?

    I dunno, I'm just good at working it out. I think a lot of it is how others project themselves. It's very easy to see someone and work out what they're really like... and then you hear them talk. I guess that's why I don't like a lot of 'Youtube personalities', political commentators, politicians.

    Also their politics.

    Out in the real world? The "first impression" bit. Reasonably neat and clean. Facial expression. General body language and attitude. If conversation ensues, it's somewhat about attitude; pleasant or other depending on the subject.

    Political views? Relatively trivial factor, absent hostility.

    I try to avoid all people IRL if it's unavoidable I'll just hang out with the people my wife does.
