People can't handle chaos. They would rather there be a race of reptilian overlords at the wheel than nobody at the wheel.

True. We're pretty heavily wired for pattern-finding.

Worker bees like the people on this site just need a strong directive hand.

They just can't be allowed to participate in decisions that affect larger concerns. They don't have the aptitude or education for it. Its ok for them to be able to decide on local concerns though.

yeah, I'm sure no one here has ever participated in large decisions in their companies. Do you, do you even know what actuaries do for a living?

It's Friday. A post doesn't need to interest me for me to post in it. Shitposters will be shitposters.
Clearly you are choosing which posts to respond to and which threads to read based on something. I doubt it's totally random. Kind of like how you claimed the OP wasn't worth your time to read but now admit that was a lie. There must be something of interest there. Even if it's just to log a zinger at bird brain.

There are posters who bore me (polymath is one of them) and i rarely reply to them or even read their threads. Because, you know, they bore me.

Guys, guys....do we really need to spend this lovely Friday tearing each other down? Especially when there's so much about The Polymath we could still be tearing down instead?

If I'm hearing you correctly, and I'm pretty sure I am, you must find me pretty interesting then, at least today.
