Designing Women - Part XXXVII

I feel bad for Paula Broadwell in the whole Petraeus scandal. She was his mistress and biographer of “All In”. Have you ever read a biography? They’re boring as shit. And that’s the edited version. She had to hear all his boring stories for days on end and still slept with him? That’s an American hero right there. I also feel bad, because the best chapter in her book hasn’t even been written yet. She should just leave some pages blank in the back of “All In” and write in updates as they come like how she thought he would enter from the front, but flanked her and entered through the rear. You have to ask yourself – what were they thinking?

According to a new study people think differently when in love than when having sex. “It suggests that when in love, people typically focus on a long-term perspective, which should enhance holistic thinking and thereby creative thought, whereas when experiencing sexual encounters, they focus on the present and on concrete details enhancing analytic thinking.” This makes total sense. If you are having sex with your mistress you focus on how much it’s going to cost now (some semen - maybe some missed meetings), but when you’re in love you have to worry about how much that mistress will cost you long term (bribes, abortions, divorce settlements, your job, etc.) Take for example the lie you need to create momentarily to explain where you were and what you did. Now look at the interlocking webs of lies you need to establish long term to cover your tracks. This is something not considered by Petraeus during his scandal. He is considered to be the creative strategic military mastermind of our generation. Clearly it’s because he was giving constant friendly fire. It also explains why we can operate on a day-to-day basis in Afghanistan, but have no long term strategy.
