You'll do well if you listen

"You'll do well if you listen to me because you're smart and I'm right."

My elder brother mentioned this yesterday. He said he heard it from some guy Charlie Munger. It's a joke. The subject heading of this post of course is not. Good advice.

Facebook and divorce

Funny statistic...

"19.78%

Percentage of UK divorce petitions that cite Facebook as a factor, based on a sample of 5,000 divorces."

Ok. Not that funny.

The Martial Arts

Dedicated to the martial artists and those who will 'inspire' a generation of martial artists, i.e. the sensible minded amongst you ;)>

"... you're mistaken about the martial arts being the practice of small techniques..."

"... The martial arts are not simply techniques - they are of the mind. If one cultivates the mind deeply, one is able to penetrate everything, including the arts of learning and government, see the world for what it is, and judge people."
