Being smart also gave me the epistemology to think success in abandoning social projects is probably outliers. It’s not really reasonable to be a *kid* and assume that basically all the responsible adults’ advice is bad.
Twitter makes this so, so different.

I realized that nearly all adults were repositories of bad advice and lies when I was about 10, and then started doing what I wanted to do. My first experience of ignoring “experts!”
It caused me no end of trouble, but I was much happier once I started rejecting what I was supposed to do and concentrating on what would make me actually smarter and better.
