"Decepticon intellectuals come in many forms. But one of their most common tricks is to play the role of the market/economic expert. Bold predictions. Fancy charts. Long exposition. Pseudo quant. Devoid of logic. Immovably committed to bold positions because it makes you sound smarter than being humbly realistic. A clever trick to gain erroneous credibility and praise."

"Purpose is important. Without a deep, meaningful purpose that drives you, it’s easy to fall into the trap of cynicism, apathy, nihilism, and despair. Take a moment today to remind yourself what your purpose is. No purpose, no longevity."

"If I had to name one quality that makes you unfit for the modern world, it's intelligence [human or artificial]. The quality that will take you the furthest — should you choose to go down a dark path — is shamelessness."

"Basic math tells us that athletes who get hammered every weekend, or once a week, will need to spend approximately half of their 4 years of eligibility just recovering from drinking, roughly 14,000 total hours, to operate at 100% baseline in terms of physical and mental optimality. So you can very easily make the case that athletes who drink alcohol are not serious people."

"I have theorized that when it comes to scientific knowledge, it seems that the more we learn, the more we realize we don’t know. An inverse relationship of knowledge if you will. We learn that we do not know. We do not even know how much there is TO know. How can knowledge, therefore, even be measured? Can one ever know all that there is? Therefore, I surmise that in our universe, in its infinite stochasticity and mystery, the expert cannot exist."

"We live in a world of trade-offs. There is no such thing as absolute victory, there is no perfect solution, there are only trade-offs. All you can do is try to get the best trade-off you can get."
