This is the best of the best responses. However... it comes from a man who knows insurance, and is being a Monday morning quarterback. It is an absolutely brilliant solution. You save your ass and get the auto insurance company on your side to boot. It is beyond clever.
But... As a smart statistician who worked for me once stated "We're always preparing for yesterday's disaster." So what principles will we carry forward to the next event which - in all likelihood - will be an unforeseen scenario? What are the generalizable principles? And will you be able to pull it off in the heat of the moment?
This is why I loved reading Rory's present and future works. Rory makes it real. We admire his brilliance after the fact rather than speculate the woulda, coulda, shoulda. And he's the first to humiliate himself by recounting his failures of judgment.
Maybe all those failures - combined with his 10,000 hours of experience - made him the martial genius we read about today. I don't know...
Great thread, Van. I learned something from it. Thanks!
