Women, apparently, are not ethereal bundles of strangeness beyond the ken of mankind.

Blaming: Some Advanced Techniques
If you assign blame it's easy: that person's yelling at you. Yelling is always wrong. Therefore, that person is wrong, and until they apologize for their actions, you don't have to do a damn thing.

The real cause of the financial crisis
When investors see a fund manager generate a higher return than his
competitors, they will move their money into that fund and out of the
other ones. And money managers are rewarded based on the size of
their fund, or the level of returns. The managers do not risk their
own money. If they can provide a bigger gain for a few years, they
win everything. They might even be lucky enough to be retired by the
time their investors are paying the piper. The managers who have the
discipline to understand and avoid the Martingale tricks will not be
able to compete on the basis of their returns over a few years, and
will eventually lose their funds and their jobs.
