Survivor... feh!

One more evening-long end to a "season" of Survivor, and it just drives home to me how disgusting it is.

Marc Stiegler's David's Sling points out that zero-sum games turn men into brutes, and positive-sum games can do the reverse. Survivor is even worse; not only is it zero-sum, it positively rewards deceit. I count myself lucky at having had minimal contact with the sort of people who win that game.
