Group intelligence is multiplicative when idiots are involved

.. - combining a half-wit with another half-wit does not result in a full-witted person, it results in a quarter-witted person (1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4). Combining a full-witted individual with a half-wit still only yields a half-wit. The more of these "wrong kinds of people" you have involved in the process, the worse things get.
Matthew Inman

history is repeating itself

..history is repeating itself, in three different ways, and the smart strategy is to bet on the same results

X paaudze

.. vienpusīgs vērtējums par to, kas patiesībā ir Palmspringsa — maza pilsētele, kur veci ļaudis cenšas atpirkt savu jaunību un dažus pakāpienus uz sociālajām kāpnēm. Kā tajā teicienā — mēs izlietojam savu jaunību, lai iegūtu mantu, bet savu mantu — lai iegūtu jaunību.
