I’ve been re-watching “Pride and Prejudice” when I eat breakfast (the BBC one with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy — mmmmmm). And I’ve decided I want to write the skeptical version of it.
New title: “Overconfidence Effect and Confirmation Bias.”
Revision of the famous first sentence: “It is the provisional but widely-accepted consensus that an unattached male with above-average income and economic stability will be open to the possibility of long-term romantic commitment.”
Thoughts on where we might go with this?
