I struggle with wanting to like Will Smith. He seems cool until he doesn't.Has there ever been someone you looked up to that ended up being really disappointed with? Could be a celebrity or someone local.

This means you should always be willing to admit being wrong, even on something you are absolutely certain of.Also, what is something related to your field of expertise that you think would be of benefit for lay persons to know?
