    yup.

    meaning, there are almost certainly a ton of super-advanced black hat tactics out there that can generate tens of thousands of dollars per day, but none of us as humans are intelligent enough to comprehend them. ;)

    Ya I think about this a lot.

    The thing is, making bloated self-assessments of your own value is harmful in pretty much every domain, EXCEPT the bar room or the night club.

    Ever wonder why, if you see a hot blonde college girl in a bar, it is almost a certifiable gaurantee that the boyfriend she's currently fucking is about as smart as a fucking dirt clod.

    We always ask ourselves, "What does she see in that guy?" She sees his confidence. Because he's so dumb, he has total confidence in himself, whereas smart people are usually MUCH more cautious about their own abilities.

    All of my geek friends are smart as fuck.

    Doctors, pHd's, genuises.

    And they all go home alone.

    your friends are just in that horrible middle-ground where they're not dumb enough to believe they're confident and they're not smart enough to know how to fake confidence. and according to this article, they're pretty much doomed. ;)

    " If Wheeler was too stupid to be a bank robber, perhaps he was also too stupid to know that he was too stupid to be a bank robber ? that is, his stupidity protected him from an awareness of his own stupidity."

    I see a criminal defense somewhere in that logic..
