The word "fair" is subjective, adds no valuable information, and I recommend against you using it

Paolo Maffei sent me a link to this intelligent site - edkless.com. I found this video on there:

It's a good video, I recommend it.

I'd go a step further than the economist there - I recommend you completely ditch the word "fair" from your vocabulary. As in, remove "I only do fair deals" or "This is unfair" or "I try to be fair."

The problem with the word fair is it's completely subjective and almost never adds valuable information to conversation. It's a hazy word that gets in the way of constructive discussion.

Cultivating Absurdity For Fun and Profit

Sebastian,

Really enjoyed your most recent blog post on quitting things that will kill you. I am curious about this section:

But with training (and not all that much training), I think it’s possible to get all of that without drinking. I do all kinds of idiot absurd shit, and then, as an added bonus, I’m sober in case I’ve got to fix the idiot shit I did. While dead sober, I say the things that most people need to get 5-6 drinks in them to say. And you know what? It’s alright, nothing irreparably bad happens.

What steps/training did you use to remove your inhibitions?

Take Care,
