Eric Falkenstein spanks Nassim Taleb

... if you aren't going to make sense, you might as well be funny: Marx's 'time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana.' [Nassim] Taleb's humor is less like Groucho, more like Karl. Kanye West is also very popular, and like Taleb tweets his fans with petulant rants.
Discipline is a beautiful thing, when administered justly.

I'd also followup with what Falkenstein says later in his piece:
Over time wisdom has made me more confident and humble. Thus, while my CPU may be slowing and RAM shrinking, I'm processing feedback more efficiently than I used to, and I wish I appreciated the value of modesty earlier.
