The Fool has patted itself endlessly on the back with regards to its RM and RB strategies

All due respect here, but this is one of the great myths that if enough people say it, you start to believe it. While I admit there were many times when we celebrated our good fortune, I think saying that we ever "endlessly patted ourselves on the back" is a little bit of overkill.

I'd love for someone to pull out 30 examples of us patting ourselves on the back, aka unduly praising how great and smart we are (which is different from being happy that things were going well.) I'll recant if someone can actually do it.

More of a rhetorical than anything else, but you get the point.
