Things people have said to me about EA

I talk to a lot of people about EA - most of them already know (quite a lot) about it, but some are totally new to EA ideas. Some of them are from parts of the world EA hasn't really taken a foothold in yet, and others have extremely underrepresented experiences with respects to the 'typical EA'. I'm hoping to casually report on interesting things I hear from people in order to hopefully inject some reality into the worldviews of EAs who might be extremely insulated from these perspectives.
