“You know King Arthur was from Ukraine.”
“Yes, all the knights from the round table were Sarmatian, and Sarmatians are the ancestors of modern-day Ukrainians.”
“I know that’s one theory…”
“It isn’t just theory. It was in a Hollywood film.”
What skill have I most developed over my last eight months as a journalist? Not how to dodge bullets or marriage proposals from armed militants. Not how to balance two sides without being black-listed by either. Not how to actually make a living from journalism. No, the art I have perfected is how to nod politely while listening to complete and utter illogic.
