No longer livestreaming because the test was successful, but sooner or later I’ll actually do the thing! Because I have a channel now! Probably gonna play XCOM Enemy Unknown because Zero really wanted me to do that, hence him buying it for me. And now that my computer has stereo mix enabled, that dream can come true!
I believe that deliberate, complete self-deception (as opposed to occasionally believing something with part of you and not another part of you, which is often useful) falls into the category “in pretty much any circumstance, you are more likely to be wrong that it’s utility-maximizing than you are to be right, and therefore it is Always Wrong.” Being wrong tends to backfire spectacularly in unexpected ways, in ways that you can’t predict or plan for because you don’t even know you should. Deliberately making yourself be wrong is courting this unexpected backfire. Bad idea.
when i was little and played pokemon g/s for the first time my rival was named “???” because
he says “my name is ???” and the cop asks you what his name was and i
thought if i didnt answer right i would be arrested so i just said what he said
so for the whole game my rival was ???
