Stress a source of strength:

A Nation of Wimps: Parents are going to ludicrous lengths to take the bumps out of life for their children. However, parental hyperconcern has the net effect of making kids more fragile; that may be why they’re breaking down in record numbers.

Nassim Taleb’s antifragility strikes again:

Fragile things break under stress. But, according to Nassim Nicholas Taleb, there’s an entire class of other things that don’t simply resist stress but actually grow, strengthen, or otherwise gain from unforeseen and otherwise unwelcome stimuli. Taleb sees degrees of antifragility everywhere, from fasting, mythology, and urban planning to economic, technological, cultural, and biological systems.

A 20 min Nassim Nicholas Taleb youtube discussion is worth listening to here

Antifragility highlights yet again how we tend to create that which we most fear. In trying to protect our children from harm now, we cause them harm later. Preventing short term harm can cause long term problems. Unfortunately short run gains are often readily apparent, while the long term harm is hidden. Keynesian economics is the classic example, as is the welfare state.

The purported goal of the welfare state, to help people, is noble. But once a society creates a welfare state its people have different expectations about their possible futures. They therefore make different choices and their behavior changes. This changes people, and the society which they in aggregate form. Over time it changes the values their children grow up with. People and society fundamentally diverge from what would have eventuated absent the welfare state. At the individual level this is epitomized by the saying:

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habit.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny

Thus a strong sovereign people and vigorous society can be transformed into something far weaker and more fragile. Truly the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

  71. There is something called matrix pricing…..Matrix PriceAn estimated price or value for a fixed-income security. Matrix prices are based on quoted prices for securities with similar coupons, ratings, and maturities, rather than on specific bids and offers for the designated security. The name “matrix price” comes from the practice of interpolating among values for similar instruments arranged in a matrix format. These model prices must be used with care and with understanding that a specific position may be highly illiquid.

  117. That’s a mold-breaker. Great thinking!

  118. When a child has a temper tantrem we put them in a corner by themselves for a “time out”. Why then is it so difficult for us adults to do the same…take that sacred pause? I regret many things that have been said in times of delusion…pain I have caused others and myself. Great article Brian! Now to remember DURING those moments to take that “time out”, breath and let the delusion pass. Because when that delusion passes and the emotions dissipate, you can see clearly what is real, and what is real is beautiful.

  119. . I know people of this blog understand, and I’mpreaching to the choir here. But the word needs to get out to the imho “wicked ones” (probably a better phrase but can’t think of one for now) that treating ALL WOMEN candidates this way is UNACCEPTABLE!

  133. Hey hey hey, take a gander at what’ you’ve done

  134. *slow clap*That was wonderful and I’m so proud even though I don’t know you. Kudos to you, I would’ve hugged you without a word and asked if you wanted to go get some coffee because why the hell not? Still, coming from an overly religious family and being genderqueer/pansexual while dating a girl, I get how tough it can be to deal with bigots and sometimes you just gotta go for the hug. Kill ‘em with kindness and honesty. Because what do you really have to lose?Anyway this really made me smile, so two thumbs-up for you!

  135. Full of salient points. Don’t stop believing or writing!

  136. Wormen ook echt. Staat ook in de sterren geschreven zeker.Waar maken we ons druk om? Ik ben inmiddels wel klaar met deze aarde, dus laat Jezus maar terug komen hoor! Ik ben klaar om te gaan 🙂

  139. There are no words to describe how bodacious this is.

  140. Great article, thank you again for writing.

  141. HHIS I should have thought of that!

  142. I have to laugh here. The anon a couple of posts above states that Flinn is ‘screwing’ Dubois for supporting Bell against him? What person would support someone who previously supported his opponent? I am also troubled by prior mistatements and recommend that the Dubois people should not be saying that former Mayor Flinn supports Dubois if he in fact does not. I have to ask why Dubois would even want Flinn’s support if Dubois felt so strongly not to support him in another race and chose to trash him in these forums.

  143. What a fabulous lot of reptiles to see in such a short period of time. Your images are stunning. I wouldn’t have thought of driving around at night to see snakes, but I’ll try that sometime when we visit the semi-arid areas of NW NSW.RegardsGaye

  144. Yo creo que esta bien que le hayan dado el premio… ha peleado por el titulo con un coche inferior… ahora lo q no veo justo esq tanto vettel como hamilton hayan quedado arriba de Kimi en esa clasificación ccuando claramente Fernando Alonso y Kimi Raikkonen han sido los mejores pilotos en esta temporada

  145. Why can’t the guy with the beard tell everyone in their dreams to carry on and not dissipate at death? Why would he have to go through you to communicate with others?You know, stories like these always make me wonder why life (death) should be so complicated. If there’s a god, he can damn talk to me right away if he wants to reach me. If there’s some afterlife-guy with a grey beard who wants to tell me to reconsider before giving up before meeting him, he surely would find a way to contact me. After all, he must be some dead ghost/soul, right?

  146. Ya learn something new everyday. It’s true I guess!

  147. Now I feel stupid. That’s cleared it up for me

  148. I don’t even know what to say, this made things so much easier!

  149. People normally pay me for this and you are giving it away!

  150. Kudos to you! I hadn’t thought of that!

  151. Red; great to see you blogging again!It is also gratifying to see how much you love the game and how earnestly you work at improving. All I have to do is think about how you SPANKED my team in the Swiss; you are doing JUST fine!As for the “what counts and what doesn’t”…….. the key to it all. When you figure it out – let me know

  152. This website makes things hella easy.

  153. No more s***. All posts of this quality from now on

  154. Thanks for sharing. What a pleasure to read!

  155. Je suis très déçu par cette application… Elle est censé s’adapter aux tablettes, mais ça fait une toute petite image au milieu de l’écran, de plus, l’application plante très souvent ce qui laisse le lapin complètement bloqué et il n’y a plus qu’a l’éteindre et le rallumer… Pas pratique quand on n’est pas sur place et qu’on voulais juste voir par la caméra. Ce n’est pas parce qu’il n’y a pas une validation aussi stricte que chez Apple qu’il faut sortir des applications à moitié finies.

  156. Race, gender, religion … There are just too many untested variables.As much as I read all the pundits and experts, I have to conclude that all bets are off. We are treading on unfamiliar ground and anyone who thinks they can call it has fooled only themselves.

  157. El jefazo y su equipo de incompetentes pero muy listos para el saqueo de lo público están dando el puntillazo final a esta España torera; después de muchos pinchazos y de los constantes abucheos del público saldrán por la puerta de atrás a refugiarse en paraisos fiscales, embajadas en lugares paradisiacos y a reirse de lo mucho que han podido robar en tan poco tiempo.Un saludo.

  158. Haha. I woke up down today. You’ve cheered me up!

  159. Good to find an expert who knows what he’s talking about!

  167. How do I plant my thoughts and comments on her state of mind, state of heart, and spiritual condition? I thought I had, but maybe not in the right way. Thanks for your wisdom on this matter.

  168. I’m not sure I understand the bile directed at Jim Nutter and Greg Patterson. They’re just exercising the same rights that Clay Chastain has enjoyed in his never-ending quest to leave his mark on Kansas City.Given the traditionally low turnout for municipal elections, the February result is hardly likely to be a resounding victory for either side. I doubt the “Presidential Preference Primary” will change that. If anything, a small minority will impose their will on a largely apathetic and lazy majority. However this thing shakes out, Kansas City gets what it deserves.

  169. I think Anderson thinks he’s smarter than everyone and no one would notice that he didn’t actually apologize. I also don’t think HE thought he was rude-his staff told him that the public thought he was rude-and I resent him lying about it. It’s pretty obvious that despite saying that he doesn’t know facts from the show, Anderson has an active dislike of Teresa. Odd to dislike someone that you know nothing about, except what you’ve heard….it surprises me that Andy can still say with a straight face that he has nothing against Teresa, when everyone he hangs out with has a low opinion of her.

  170. Great hammer of Thor, that is powerfully helpful!

  171. Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to understand so much about this, like you wrote the e book in it or something. I feel that you simply could do with a few % to pressure the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

  172. Knocked my socks off with knowledge!

  173. IMHO you’ve got the right answer!

  174. Wow! Talk about a posting knocking my socks off!
