The Trend Following Skeptics Are Not Just Skeptics … They Are Kool-Aid Drinking Flat Earthers

Jim Byers passes along the wisdom:

Charles Babbage, the father of the modern computer, once said, “Propose to a man any principle, or an instrument, however admirable, and you will observe the whole effort is directed to find a difficulty, a defect, or an impossibility in it. If you speak to him of a machine for peeling a potato, he will pronounce it impossible: If you peel a potato with it before his eyes, he will declare it useless, because it will not slice a pineapple.”

Nice.
