If ten thousand people sit around flipping coins all day and somebody gets a streak of 15 in a row do you conclude that she's a really skilled coin tosser? Huh?! Do you???
Now let me explain the withering contempt I feel for you and rest of my fellow human beings. If you start speaking and I even suspect that your utterance will not be dripping with sycophantic hysteria I will sigh very loudly before squashing you like a bug.
People are obsessed with status because they are stupid, coarse and greedy and they don't realise that their status depends on luck. These people disgust me and I do not seek such status. Did I mention that I own 4000 books? That I spend my life reading poetry and classics which I actually understand? That I jet all over the world all the time? That my expertise in economics and philosophy far exceeds that of anybody currently alive? There are a few figures in history that have been perceptive, but I have either been the person to discover their pearls of wisdom or the first person to actually appreciate their insight.
