    I've come to think that it ultimately is important to have trailblazers in the public view, and that it does do something.

    I used to be skeptical of that idea, but I've made enough observations suggesting the opposite to change my mind.

    Ultimately, the mere existence of public figures that defy stereotypes can make a difference.

    I am interested to know what and if there is a significant difference in the amount of men, played:won as opposed to women. Probably someone could figure it out, make a lifes worth of study about it and tie it to some sort of hypothesis about the superiority of particular groups, counter-argue that it is because of a cultural phenomena/self-fulfilling stereotype/ rinse and repeat until it evolves into an exact replica of the 3rd wave feminism thread.

    I do think that in this case it is an issue with assurance. I think I read somewhere that females in general tend to be naturally a bit more prone to second guessing themselves, and therefore underperform on standardized tests. You can almost see a bit of that hesitance in contestants.

    "Sleazebags" and "Pervs." Who would have thought you'd hear that from the mouth of someone running for president? What a riot.
    There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

    The guy who created Soylent, Rob Rhinehart, is a fucking psycho by the way.

    Minus his eating habits, I'm a little envious.
