Some short hippocket knowledge I use.
Look, the Harlem Globetrotters haven't lost a game since the prokaryotes and eukaryotes split over irreconcilable differences. The games rigged.
If they went up against an NBA team, they'd get rolled.
My point? You rig the game in your favor, you end up shooting yourself in the foot. You lose the skills that got you to the top.
Sure, it sucks. You're at the top of your game, and along comes some snapperwhipper causing you to reinvent yourself. Suck city.
But you know what? That's just the game.
