1) I'm always about 3 steps ahead in my thinking relative to my opponent, I've covered the contingencies, worked out the mitigation aspects and have to wait till the lemmings finally get to the point where I "checkmate" them.
2) Aspiring to material actualization seems to have lost relevance to self actualization which seems to be a swing between absolutely nailing what I don't like and leveraging what I see as good and just. (We don't like emotions ruling actions, if there's no purpose how is the action defined?)
3) People are just so damned weak. Bounded by their negativity, lack of motivation and flexible ethics/morals = Path of least resistance.
It doesn't suck being Elitist though

The doctor is first cowed. He obeys. Only then comes the anger, the hurt professional pride, the idea of a refusal. But it is too late. The patient has already left the room.
Thinking=being prepared. You can not attack the man with authority without the authority over him.
Authority becomes from being prepared. To know more than the other. Not to cow. To speak out with harshness.
And then to leave the room while the other one (the ignorant fool) is still talking.
Yes, you can overthink. Too much thinking about something "irrational" can never lead you to a conclusion, only a large set of plausibility’s, none of which is useful if you've not worked out that the situation was "irrational".
Uncovering a large set of plausibility’s is great for future perspectives on situations, but can fry your brain in the interim.
I generally believe that infinite thinking can win the day and overcome all odds (eventually)... however, in some situations (eg relationships) less thinking can be beneficial especially with offset with more outgoing (extroversion)...
Life is short, don't waste too much of it thinking.

Fries = thin obnoxious things that have a trillion tonnes of salt put on them. Aka McDonalds.
Chips = thicker potatoe slices. Like fries only thicker.
Ps: You're biased by virtue of your surname siding with the McDonald clan..
Pps: Use the sauce, may the sauce be with you.
That's only one kind of fry. Waffle fries are basically cross-sectioned potatoes in a wavy cut. Steak fries are thicker and more delicious than thin fries, like your chips. Seasoned fries are like chips with cajun spices on them. Yum!
Anyway, they're all fatty, dude, so don't think your chips are in any way superior to other fried foods.
