MmmmBacon: Alphax: Unsure if he's serious. Scott Adams, that is.I would guess it is one of two things: A heaping load of sarcasm, something Adams is well know for, or his butter pat has finally slipped off of the noodles.
Silverstaff: He's kind of used to this kind of commentary, since he even wrote a book about how he's a cartoonist getting his ass handed to him on a regular basis in discussions about involved in serious academic/economic/political matters a few years ago.
tira: Show of hands, who knew it was about Scott Adams before they even clicked?
vygramul: ral instincts of men are shameful and criminal while the natural instincts of women are mostly legal and acceptable. and my eyes narrow, saying to myself, "yes, but where are you going with this?" and, as is the case with most people who talk a
Monkeyhouse Zendo: To a limited extent he is correct. Large investment firms can take advantage of arbitrage trading in futures markets that is unavailable to the mom and pop investor or even smaller investment firms. As I recall, there is a building in New York that is wired with an assload of fiber and floors full of server solely to reduce the network latency while doing automated arbitrage trades.Think about that for a moment. Arbitrage trades are being executed so rapidly and at such volume that your WoW ping time is an unacceptable delay.
jjorsett: Everyone should ignore Adams and go back to listening to the latest viewpoints of Sean Penn and Sophia Vergara.
Lochsteppe: furiousxgeorge: I love Dilbert, but Adams being kind of an idiot is well known. He tried to troll Metafilter once pretending to be someone else because folks there were bashing him. He was called on it in one post.He's also gone on some strange anti-women rants in the past couple of years. Not sure if he snapped, or was always like that, or money/fame went to his head, or what. Kind of lowered my once-high opinion of him.
Alphax: Unsure if he's serious. Scott Adams, that is.
