Shocked Vladimir Putin Slowly Realizing He Didn’t Conspire With Trump Campaign

tbh as an outside observer, the Democrats have to tread carefully. They are starting to look like wild eyed loons with an eye on the presidency.

Re: Yalies no longer the great unwashed

Why Rich Parents Are More Likely to Be Unethical?

I've never been good at writing academic research grant applications: I'd simply ask "Why poor parents don't pay million dollar bribes?" - Because they are ethical!... No, sorry!
It was written by a "moral psychologist" what did you expect?

Re: I want to steal his CEO job NOW!

My 2 cents again. Ideas are easy, execution is very hard. Don't focus on the ideas, focus on the execution.

Re: Universe Tea - Blog 2018

Especially when you say being a CEO is not about being Actuarial or Sales...really helpful and the qualities that you state as well and the emphasis on "CHECK THE EGO!".

Re: Brexit - the last 50 days

I blame the handling of Brexit by the political class.
I blame the handling of brexit on a much of nincompoops, who happen to be the political class. I really don't think that the IG is going to change anything.

Re: Machine learning for fun, to pay your rent or whatever
