I love observing things, collecting data and analyzing it. If I could do it for a living I would. But like many things we actually need, there's no real way to make a living doing it. After being on this planet for a few decades, the most prominent thing I've noticed is people don't think. Like at all. Either they are too lazy to do it, they don't care, they are just incapable of doing it or they just assume they already know everything. All of these are very scary. The last one particularly so.

To make matters worse, society enables rich and or dumb people way too much. President 45 is the culmination of this. A rich dumb person running as a marketing stunt and then dumb people who are conned into voting for him. This should never have happened. As a society, we need to do better. If we don't, humanity won't exist in another 300 years. We are currently destroying our planet and nobody seems to care, except for teenagers who can't really do much about it at the moment. We can't keep letting dumb selfish people and rich people with fancy made-up titles dictate how society works.

Most things in life are quite simple. People make them hard, generally on purpose. It's amazing how much you can learn if you just shut up and observe. I had a friend who lived with me for a few years and, as women typically do, she dated a lot of guys in that span. I correctly predicted who she would break up with and who she would marry, all on the first few times I met them. The guy I knew she would marry, she just married. For me, I thought it was quite easy to predict. And I don't possess any special powers. I just use my brain. And you can too.

Think like a scientist or a journalist, don't think like a caveman or cavewoman.

There's an old saying in woodworking that goes: measure twice, cut once. We really need one for everyday life that goes: think twice, do once.

I plan on writing books on egos and the workplace, women and dating and politics. But in the meantime, you can read this site.
