It really is, though.
You know how the best friends are the people with whom you can share long silences and it would be the most comfortable thing in the world?
Or how, in a conversation, you find yourself learning a lot of stuff and letting it all soak in, and you don't want to say anything because you'll add nothing of value to the conversation and "WHOAAA, DUDE" sounds wrong in the modern world of always-assume-sarcasm?
Or that joke about how light travels faster than sound, and some people appear bright before they open their mouths?
Silence is cool, yo. I wish more people were comfortable with it.
