  •  Interesting. (7+ / 0-)

    I was the first-born.  My Little Brother is the successful weapons-designer and real-estate speculator with a couple of million in rental properties.  He is also, need I say, a lot closer to the profile of "sociopath" which we have been using?  Shallow, lacking in empathy, and a firm believer in social darwinism who attributes his "success" to his superior intelligence instead of the material advantages he was handed on a silver platter.  I, of course, was always able to beat him at any strategic game or academic contest that controlled for cheating.

    •  Ah, this is a variant I've only read about... (0+ / 0-)
