/lurk is always right; that's his curse and his cross to bear.

Being right doesn't make you happy.

Older married man: do you want to be right or do you want to be happy? Pick one.

See that's a non-choice because if I knew I was wrong about something important I wouldn't be happy.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Was that the same justification you used to hassle me before the election to ensure I voted the correct way? :-\

I'm not sure I understand how the being right vs. being happy thought experiment relates to voting.

That sounds good.

I dunno. To me it was important to not vote for either of the two candidates because they were dumb.

Because even if your vote didn't change anything, you didn't want to give your tacit approval to the election of either?

I didn't like either of them. They were both silly and not what I want.
