Response to: on the use of words "of course" to Socrates

everytime i write the words "of course" or "obviously" i pause and hesistate about whether i should say something that way. A friend of mine and I had a discussion about this and how he hated it when professors say "obviously" or "of course", b/c it may not be obvious to someone, and it just serves to make them terrified to ask. I suppose i should just eliminate those words from my vocabulary, as it is not my intent to make someone feel uncomfortable for not realizing something. I'm the last person who should be telling another that something is obvious or plain to see when i often need to be told of someting sitting right in front of my face. So, obviously, my point is that "obviously" and "of course" are out :-)
