One Step Closer to Larry David

I received a fair amount of criticism recently for suggesting people whose preferred form of aerobic exercise entails walking on the treadmill ought to find another, less in demand, machine on which to delude themselves work out so as to best capitalize on the positive sum opportunity that a diverse range of fitness levels presents. Say what you will, but logic is on my side: ignoring positive sum opportunities is an implicit subjugation of aggregate utility to personal utility. Or more simply put, about as close as you can get to a technical definition of “selfish.”

And yes, I’m thinking of you, irony-deaf person who used the “cool down” function on a walk.
