Game Theory based strategies deal not with mathematics alone but with the idea that human often act irrationally
Thanksgiving is a time of family etc. My wife and I were watching a movie about marriage and ruminating on why some couples stay together and others get divorced?
Here is funny story, maybe a Zen Koan for you about marriage:
“A man goes to a psychiatrist and explains that his wife is insane.
“Maybe she is a bit eccentric” replies the psychiatrist. “You can learn to adjust to her behavior, after all marriage is compromise”.
“No” replies the man. “She is really crazy”
“What makes you so sure that she is crazy?” asks the psychiatrist
“She thinks she’s a chicken” Replies the man
“She thinks she’s a chicken”
“What makes you think, that she thinks she is a chicken?” Asks the Psychiatrist
“Well she acts like a chicken”!
“I don’t understand” Replies the psychiatrist
The man explains. “Every morning she wakes up and starts to make clucking noises. Then she bends over and starts to peck at the floor like she is eating seeds. Then she waves her arms up and down like a chicken does.”
“Wow” say the psychiatrist, “Your wife really does think she is a chicken”.
“That’s what I told you” replies the man.
“Why do you stay married to her”? Asked the psychiatrist
The man responded instantly, without any thought or sense of irony. “Because I need the eggs!”
