More ways to think ‘stupid’.

Continuing on my ‘bandwagon’ of imitating stupidity – only to ensure that I define the concept – today I review a video and make some idiotic statements that will resound with a majority of stupid people. I assure you though that the stupid statements are based on errors of applicationRead More

A kind of logic–among the intentionally stupid

1. Nick Leeson was rogue trader and criminal who brought down Baring’s bank in the 1990s. 2. Nick Leeson was a derivatives trader – aka gambler (to most people). 3. Derivatives trading and gambling are good ways to lose money. 4. It’s all illegal – why else would they haveRead More

Expertise (work in progress)

The following mindmap condenses some of my thoughts on the nature of expertise. It is for sure not complete – and thank you, I need no assistance or references. And because I’m not here to teach you who reads this, don’t be daft and expect me to unpack every partRead More

Errrh.. what line? Somebody is about to ask. Tough – it’s that mysterious line in the sand. Read on or get stuffed. I’ve been reflecting on a certain theme over the last few weeks. I’ve been thinking about individuals who I have distanced myself from. By that I mean A]Read More

‘The Edge’ – no mistakes in the mind.

‘The Edge’ – is a film screened in 1997.  No – I’m not about to do a film review, so calm down. I had completely missed this film and only viewed last night on Lovefilm which is now ‘Amazon Prime’.  Recently I’ve become rather saddened that most Sci-Fi films theseRead More
