Only by accepting our emotions and feelings can we control our behaviour, and thereby make better choices of what, when and where are interesting or even optimal trades to place.

Only by accepting that each live trade is a honeypot of uncertainty, can we understand that building a better technical edge gives us a greater chance of shifting our probability of success - but can never guarantee it right now.

Only by opening our eyes, hearts and minds, do we give our brains and bodies the best chance to do well in the jobs we give them.

Only by accepting ourselves for what we are now, do we make it more likely that we will change into what we will become.

It's a definite maybe and yes, I know I'm a rational acronym title sucker.

I always thought it's some cartoon character.

Indeed, some smoky weed.

I'd forgotten this old chestnut, the power of words and pictures all in one thread, whatever next. Weirdly I didn't know of the cartoons when I originally picked the moniker. Fortunately I'm unlike either, phew.

Still searching for a channel to resume a more normal service on, still stuck with one leg on each coast, life limiting as usual for now.

Cheers

I always thought you had not -- it seemed an odd choice to me, although, as far as I know, this kind of picture is the main cultural reference to the character. This is what occurred to me when I first encountered your posts. I figured it just had something to do with non-conformity and rebellion, which I value and you obviously do as well.

I'm not surprised you hadn't seen the big crazed rat, though.

Huh. You apparently have no idea how famous the "ratfink" character is. In the US, in my high school crowd (hence I am dating myself) the illustrations were famous, widely enjoyed and frequently imitated. There were a lot of them.

(Note: actually they were well before my high school time. I'm not that damn old. But, we still laughed at them, and teenagers have no sense of even their recent history. Not that adults do, either....)

Here's the story: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rat_Fink: "Roth began airbrushing and selling "weirdo" T-shirts at car shows and in the pages of hot rod publications such as Car Craft in the late 1950s. By the August 1959 issue of Car Craft, "weirdo shirts" had become a craze with Ed Roth at the forefront of the movement."

You're famous! How many people have Wikipedia articles about them?

You are seriously missed, you should know.

I understand the many reasons to stay away, and have some myself. Come back when you can. We will be happy to see you again.

You may have to live down the funny pictures after all this, though.

Bob.
