As many of you know, Bridgewater Associates is mega-successful, multi-billion dollar hedge fund guided by Principles, a company handbook written by founder and Mentor Ray Dalio, which instructs employees to go on radical truth seeking missions in order to better themselves and in turn the firm. Bridgewater takes the principles very seriously and each member of the staff is given spiral bound copies to read, highlight, and imbue their souls with. While the idea of Truth above all else is the overarching idea, there are literally hundreds of principles (such as 31a. “Ask yourself whether you have earned the right to have an opinion,” 130. “…Firing people is not a big deal…” and 184. “Use checklists”), which span 123 pages and are broken down into outline form after being explained at length.

You want to do something, but what? For the purposes of this scenario, it should be noted that on good days you’re a little nuts and on bad you are a full on psycho. Do you a) send her a few messages, lie to her and swear that this time, you’re really going to break it off with your wife? b) confront the guy and settle things mano y mano c) break into her apartment and trash the place, knowing full well she’ll assume it’s you and maybe be scared into taking you back or d) break into her apartment, trash the place but in such a way that those examining the scene would think that you were 1) a woman and 2) the piece on the side of the guy your girl just started seeing?
