At dinner, discussing a past decision that I now think was misguided.
Me: "You know how some people appear to be completely assured, and never experience regret or doubt? That would be nice."
Dan2: "Those people are disliked by most other people."
Me: "Naw, that's not true."
Dan2: "I think it is. However, they probably don't care about others disliking them, because they're just above it all. But then they don't self-correct, and can go down disastrous paths."
Me: "I guess if you never experience doubt, eventually you become Hitler."
Dan2: "Godwin's Law has been invoked. This conversation is over."
