I have a personal saying that someone is "arrogant and ignorant." People who try to sound like an authority outside of their area of expertise is a major a pet peeve of mine. And, to avoid any doubt, exercise science is certainly not my area. I'm here to simply improve my desk jockey self. So that was to simply say that I heard a Japanese proverb the other day that struck me along the same lines: "The frog in the well doesn't know the sea." I read this as both a warning against small pond small fish syndrome, and also a general warning against the unexpected or black swans.
So I'm sure I'll wake up in the morning and once again wonder what the hell I was ranting against. Oh, in any event, Merry Christmas and happy 8th night of Hanukkah. And Happy Festivus. And before you mistake me as being too PC, let me be the first to say that, one those first two are family holidays, and that second one is a friend holiday, and three, I haven't encountered a holiday yet that involves drinking that I don't like. So cheers and whatnot.
