    They should have held onto that 185 IQ guy, but instead they banned him.

    A forum recently changed software and one guy didn't like it, so the other members told him to get lost. People are cheap and replaceable.

    I posted on a MGTOW forum a few times and some guys loved my content so much that they pleaded with me to introduce myself so I wouldn't get banned. I told them I'm not jumping through any hoops, to which a mod replied that it was his pleasure to ban me.

    People are animals, pure and simple. They aren't interested in building a movement; only throwing their weight around.

    "Uh, yes, Mr. Musk... we hear you're 400x better than everyone else, but if you don't bend over and kiss our backside, we will take pleasure in finding someone else."

    Either the animals have to evolve or they have to be neutered (remove the power to ban). That's a LONG way off.

    It's really interesting to think about Luck and to try to understand the role it plays in our lives. And it becomes quite fascinating the more you realize how this thing called Luck is truly in every part of our daily existence. I think because of something like Luck, the World becomes less dangerous to live in. I mean just to be alive and to make it through another day, Luck has to be part of our daily interaction with the World where without it, we can fall victims in all sorts of serious ways. We can increase our chances of good/bad Luck by doing things to help in that matter but I think we are limited in how much of an effect this will have in the overall chances of reaching something because at the end of the day, the results are an amalgam of unknowable events that we can't possibly have any control over and only become somewhat clear in hindsight.

    So the more I think about it, the more it becomes clear to me how something like Luck is really what determines how life is going to go for you. We can do our part to increase our chances of it but since we can't actually see & predict what's going to happen in the next seconds, hours, days etc., we have to rely on something like Luck to be in our favor to help us continue on this journey and manage to get ahead in this World.

    So I see Luck as being built-in to Life and all we can do is to try and better our chances at it but can never truly control Its final destination. So what's your destiny in Life? Well that depends on the type of Luck you have so I guess who knows ...

    Luck...its all in our heads....some heads are just more susceptible than other heads....

    What if Luck was just that?....something we make up....something we just 'believe' in order to make sense of the world....?

    Would we have invented gambling, games.....or ....even capitalism without the belief in Luck? WTF?

    I can't believe in Luck....I believe in NOW.....I believe in intent....and the ability to carry on.....another day....

    I can !

    If you play MMORPG's online, you can find folk who you can measure are more than 400x better than Joe Average, they are often gifted, and work hard.

    There is a tendency lets say, as folk get better and better, that they tend towards Machiavellian style solutions.

    So I think ideally you may only want someone 200x better before they start to go evil..
    Ego is speaking here....

    "No life is any better or worse ...or more deserving than any another life"....from the fattest, loudest and richest human to the smallest nematode.....all are precious and equally deserving IMHO

    I reckon one of the reasons why rich folk appear to have better luck is that they have the resources to deal with bad luck better than poor people !

    As such, one of the lessons I've learned in life, is always plan for bad luck happening !

    Makes you wonder what steps we can do to make that happen.

    True, but maybe you could replace the phrase good luck with success, and bad luck with failure.

    Yes...it is wise to prepare for the worst while hoping (and also taking appropriate action) for the best.... I feel that this concept is inherent within all species to one degree or another..at our deepest core.....Humans just see it in ourselves more often due to self obsessive behavior and mindset...IMO


    ....or how bout simply 'Living the life you Love'.....?
