Life isn't fair.

Who knows if this fella deserves his success, but I do know that a high % of people who are rich and successful have achieved it by sheer luck not by talent, skill or hard work.

I know some of the most successful gamblers in the UK but there is only person who if he gives me something he fancies I will back it blind without looking at the market myself.

And this guy who I rate the shrewdest gambler I know is pretty much completely flat broke.

People massively overrate talent and totally underrate variance IMO.

How do you know this ?.. your usual social circle is the self made businessman ?... I know many self made guys and everyone of them is intelligent,shrewd with an overwhelming work ethic.. there are a few wedged up who just happen to be good at one particular thing and are as thick and ignorant as a brick wall with the personality to go with it.. but these are the exception

Spot on, biggest load of horse poop I've heard on here in a while.

Try reading "Fooled by Randomness" by Nicholas Nassib Taleb.

It was revelatory experience for me.

Did it help you become rich and successful ?

controversial one

"Forget the hype. The 2015 general election is not balanced on a knife edge. Nor is it  “too close to call”. Barring a political deus ex machina, the only question that now remains is will the Tories manage to secure a majority, or will they be returned to government as part of a coalition or  a minority administration.
 
Labour’s hopes died this week. "

Article written by Dan Hodges.

Who he?

Glenda Jackson's son, former Blairite, supported David Miliband in the leadership election, voted for Boris in the London Mayoral election, now writes for The Telegraph and is said to be David Cameron's favourite columnist.

So, pinch of salt and all that.

Says the leftie, grind of pepper and all that lol

I've been entertained by Andrew's posts on here for 10 years.

I never once thought he was a "leftie".

Weird how you got that impression of him.

Not really, pretty easy to see to be honest.

Being to the left of Woodsey means there might be many lanes of traffic to cross before I hit the hard shoulder.

I've just moved from Mapperley Park in Nottingham, there is a couple of roads in the immediate vicinity I would never go on in snow, they are pretty steep. In fact a few weeks ago when we last had snow there was a couple of dopey birds halfway up Tavistock Drive and their car was skidding like hell. I had to convince them to leave their car on the side on the road as it would even have been hard to go back down without causing some damage. They lived just round the corner so they didn't argue too much.
