A Sign Of Age - Eggs and Milkshakes

Advice To Politicians Re Game Theory

Applying game theory when considering how to vote on something might be all well and good in a school debating society. However, in the real world, real people have real lives that they are trying to their best to manage under very trying circumstances.

When politicians apply game theory to important votes (instead of applying their conscience/beliefs) it fucks with real people's lives.

If you can't vote without playing games, then it is better you never vote at all!

Kudos To South Korea

Kudos to South Korea for making the most honest statement I have ever heard from a country in many years, wrt the Hanoi debacle, in which they basically said they didn't know what the fuck had just happened and were going to ask the Americans.

That very brief statement, apart from being remarkably honest, contains a hell of a lot of meat!
