Pickings from mind blowers

Things that blew my mind in recent weeks:

  • A friend of mine saying that they should tell you the truth on public TV
  • Witnessing randomness, not knowledge, as the most powerful distinguisher between winners & losers on academic soil (more on that later)
  • Realizing that despite the official reasoning, a purposeful devaluation of Czech crown against pretty much anything from euro, dollar and pound to polish zloty is not going to help Czech export.
  • Apparently a business model of booking.com is to let users drown in their complicated & chaotic user interface and then charge them fees for overbooking.
  • 24/7 customer support is worth only so much, especially when a respective employee on the other end does not read the ticket’s description and only reads a headline that you had to pick from pre-selected ones.
  • That being said, I have to confess I might sometimes be too quick to judge, especially when it comes to mathematical methods in economics (or the two points above).
  • Governor of Czech Central Bank, a man who is proudly ruining Czech currency, has a PhD from mathematical methods in economics.
  • Risk has nothing to do with numerical value
  • Love sprouts from going the extra mile, love expanses in direct correlation with judgment ceasefire.
  • Grass is not always greener on the other side of a fence.
  • Blame delegation > responsibility acceptance, as far as my fellow schoolmates are concerned. Bad.
