Default #1 Tradition Thread

this is about ice skate design
http://regressing.deadspin.com/how-a...4286074/@samer

This thread is about "we've always done it that way," and is intended to demonstrate that just as people with "change" ever on their lips are charlatans, people with "tradition" ever on their lips have spinach stuck between their teeth. The traditional way is rarely the best way. All that can truly be said for it, shut up Burke, is that it doesn't kill people. Well...it doesn't kill people obviously (lead water pipes in Rome).

Traditions aren't started by traditionalists, in a run of the mill IRONY IS THE GUIDING PRINCIPLE OF THE UNIVERSE simple home truth.

People say that because their parents did it that way, their grandparents did it that way, it worked, and they like it that way.

Yes - they don't think. There is a very strong human bias against thinking, and the professional conservative intellectuals cater to it, even the very best such as Ed Burke.
