Well, dude, Happy National Hangover Day ! Maybe they didn't tell you, but this is also National Put in a Subject Decade, and we're trying to do our bit ! Actually, it's because without a title, it's hard for anyone to remember which message is which, and for readers to know which ones they might want to read and which ones they might want to ignore !
You know, there is an interesting phenomenon discovered in psych research ( I wonder how they came to check this up ? ) called State Dependent Learning. What it means is that it seems that whatever you learn when studying, or in life, if it is learned by your brain when under the influence of a relevant chemical ( like alcohol, weed, or whatever ) ; tend to be only well remembered again when the brain is in a similar state. So if one smokes or drinks while studying and not during the exam, one could experience some significant fallout in what one can remember, even if one studied earnestly.
This may also be why drunks do silly things but don't remember them until they're drunk again, bu which time it's too late, and so they get drunker to try to forget it.
Interesting line you're tying -- wasn't that exactly what former ( nor former ? ) banker Nick Leesen was doing at work, and suddenly found he'd lost a couple of billion, which broke the ancient bank he was working for ?
Bit as you say, a key element is to control one's greed --- and to recognize when one has lost modestly and to give up in time. I gather that research finds that most fortunes lost, on the stockmarket or wherever in finances, is because people are so reluctant to believe that they have made the wrong decision or choice, and insist on holding on to a lousy stock, insisting that it HAS to come up again. Some, like Enron, NEVER rise again, and only a few rise, usually far too late for anyone who initially held much of them.
Good luck, too, with your wise weeding project.
Max is really talented, isn't he ? Our cat is very interested in everything we eat or drink --- it's like going through customs, to get past her. She always looks deeply disappointed when a sniff reveals its only a cup of coffee. I wonder what it is that she so obviously suspecvts that we keep drinkiong which she assumes she would adore, only to end up, almost audibly, thinking "Shyte, only that darn coffee again !"
