"Leaving parts of the language unspecified may seen odd or even dangerous, but it reflects C’s philosophy. One of the language’s goals is efficiency, which often means matching the way the hardware behaves. Some CPUs yield -1 when -9 is divided by 7, while others produce -2; the C89 standard simply reflects this fact of life."

“Let me tell you something you already know.  The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty  place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your  knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody  is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s  about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can  take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you  know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you  gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you  ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do  that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!”

And who has been saying these things? Little old Lady P, that’s who. Perhaps now people will understand why I always talk about the hazards of being “dumb”…

A more puzzling but just as reliable finding is that people of lower intelligence are more likely to have disorders that stem in large part from genes. For instance, the new paper quotes a 2010 finding that those who have IQ scores just one standard deviation lower than the mean have a 60% greater risk of being admitted to a hospital for schizophrenia. That could be because admitting staffs are biased against people they see as less intelligent, but low intelligence is also correlated with greater risk of alcohol problems, depression, anxiety, late-onset dementia and posttraumatic stress disorder — again, even after researchers control for class variances. The same goes for risk of death by suicide and homicide and risk of injury from fights, stabbings, or maulings with blunt instruments.

Some of these relationships can be explained simply: stupid people make stupid decisions. But no one decides to be schizophrenic or to have dementia (or, for that matter, to be mauled by a blunt instrument). The authors wonder, then, if there’s a genetic relationship between intelligence and likelihood of injury and earlier-than-average death.

And acting excessively “sunshiney” all the time…

Studies have shown for nearly 20 years that the key personality trait that predicts longevity is conscientiousness. In one long-term study, students judged by their parents and teachers to be conscientious as 12-year-olds were more likely to be alive when researchers followed up 64 years later. Surprisingly, though, the same study found that cheerfulness was related to greater mortality risk, suggesting that happy, popular kids turn out to be at greater risk for disease later on, perhaps because they feel overly confident about their abilities to defeat life’s difficulties.

I suggest reading the entire article. It goes well beyond these yummy snippets into other interesting fare I think all of you - being of the ace quality that you are - would really appreciate and absorb - and I realize I’ve edited this post three times now.
