An old joke thats totally apropos:
I once asked a friend on Wall Street about the market.
“I’m optimistic,” he said.
“Then why do you look so worried?” I asked.
And he answered: “Because I’m not sure my optimism is justified . . .”
Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
