UGH!! That was a self-referential question! Not really a question, but a literary statement.

Re: The importance of rigidly following your rules

Wait! An anecdote??

You're using an anecdote to justify your position?

I'm sure if you looked through your trades, you could find examples where rigidly following your rules was a money loser.

Re: Mega themes investing - theme 4/10:- Robotic

Our small, rural hospital is doing its first MAKO (now Stryker) procedure today...!
