The Similarity between Dead and Stupid

Professor Feynman wrote, “When you are dead, you don’t know you are dead. It’s pain only for others.

It’s the same thing when you are stupid.”

Isn’t this brilliant and spot on?

We don’t know when we are being stupid.

But we all do sometimes or many times.

Isn’t it better then to be Less Stupid because it’s unlikely we humans will be able to avoid stupidity or stupid people altogether?

And the price of our stupidity whether in investing or in life will always be paid by others.

So, let’s take an Oath to be less stupid and to stay away from the dangerously stupid people we come across in our lives.

I have taken this oath.

Have you?
