  1. To be fearless, you must have something that others want. You must have something that gives you a competitive advantage. And this better not be a lot of hot air.

    Being mendicant with high dependence on hand-me-outs like ALBA is just laughable. You must tell those ostriches this much. Full of hot air and putting out a begging bowl at the same time? Whoa! That makes you sound very powerfully foolish.
