Re: Life Expectancy

Yeah, its a great place.

Look you two...both of you had reasonable ideas with ups and downs. I perfectly understood both of them and told you what the shortcomings were. And if you'll re-read the respective threads, I was pretty dang nice about it.

Unfortunately, not completely accepting your ideas resulted in both of you coming to the same conclusion: I must simply not understand them! Aint that obvious?!?

I patiently explained to both of you my comprehension of your ideas and specifically what the problems were with them, as I perceived it. Several times. But it appeared you both jumped to write your replies before reading anything I wrote and looking at what I had to say. still didnt understand your foolproof ideas. What a moron!

After the 3rd or 4th time through this, yep, I got a little "prickley" about it.

While both your ideas are innovative and bear merit and consideration, both have holes big enough to drive trucks through.

Which would probably be why almost nobody is doing either of them.

Maybe all y'all would like to consider figuring out how to separate yourself from your ideas so as to not take it personally when the ideas are criticized.

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
