Slugs aren't the losers of the gastropod world.

Another great comic strip from My good friend and music comrade Fraser Van Norton over at Mind Hummus.
This one is about the mystical life cycle of gastropods.

Cognitive Bias

Now when it comes to an interesting point I find it hard not to talk about it, I find it helps me remember the thought and explaining it to someone else serves to better understand it, however it never ceases to amaze me how some people react to things I tell them.
Recently I have been reading about cognitive bias, a brief description of cognitive bias is : a pattern of deviation in judgement that happens in certain situations leading to irrationality.
I'm not going to go into it too much as Wikipedia is just over the page, but I was talking to an acquittance about this phenomenon to which she replied "I don't have any of those."

I love irony and I am just speechless at this statement as I'm certain that the denial of having any cognitive bias could in itself be a cognitive bias.
Thank you Irony.
