    When a psychiatrist rewards rats for finishing a maze

    January 17th, 2012

    He does not like you

    December 19th, 2011

    At a recent train club event someone came up to me and said, “Dick doesn’t like you.”

    I replied, “That doesn’t concern me.”

    The helpful gossip then tried to start telling me why Dick doesn’t like me. I interrupted, and again said, “That doesn’t concern me.”

    Yet again he started explaining Dick’s reasons for disliking me.

    I stopped him and said, “Think about this. . .

    There are about 200 members of this club. About 10 of those members are close friends. 189 members get along with me well. They are either indifferent or just haven’t got to know me well. 1 member – Dick – doesn’t like me.

    Which group of people should I spend my time thinking about?

    Note: to those of you who belong to the train club. I changed the names here. I don’t think there is anyone named Dick in the club since Dick G. moved away years ago.

    Knowledge is reached by

    December 2nd, 2011

    Knowledge is reached (mostly) by removing junk from people’s heads.

    Nicholas Taleb in the book “The Bed of Procrustes: Philosophical and Practical Aphorisms”

    Another great line from the same book is, “Today, we mostly face the choice between those who write clearly about a subject they don’t understand and those who write poorly about a subject they don’t understand.”
