    Boy, that's a lot of predators! But there's a vanishingly small number of people whose biases might affect their voting patterns (other thread)?

    What makes you think a lot of people thrive in business? Seems to me most of us are just wage slaves crushed under the yoke, doing what we can because we must, and waiting for the sweet release of death.

    On the flip side, more than few of the women who thrive in those fields can be worse than many of men. See: TV personalities, CEOs, politicians, and athletes.

    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Yes, you should.

    Honestly, "tech bros" may be even more annoying than "jock bros" or "Wall Street bros".
