In Misfires

“Idiot: A member of a large, powerful tribe whose influence in human affairs has always been dominant and controlling.”

-Ambrose Bierce

I just realized that I have to adjust my attitude on life and become an idiot. Why? Because the current health magazines say idiots are optimists and optimists live longer. I will abandon pessimism. Pessimism causes strokes. Now the real question is: do I want to live a long life as a happy idiot or do I want to be a realist dying of a stroke?
