The point that I'm making, just to spell it out, is that I think you're making the common presumption that human beings really are "rational actors". Because human beings are not, really, it's entirely possible to run a profitable business exploiting people's irrationality.

(I note I'm seeing some spam targeted at jarheads now -- "hey bro!" -- rather than geezers.)
