And to clarify, the response was to the discussion a few pages back of the fact that none of us is going to do well at the Olympic level.

FWIW, In 2004 I fenced against a member of the 1996 US Olympic fencing team and only lost my bout 5-1. A year or so later I lost 5-4 to the under-19 US champion and the Over-60 US champion (two different bouts, not the same person). The U-19 guy was psychotically fast, while the over-60 guy just knew what I was going to do before I did because he'd seen it all before.
These are women? Trans women?

I'm having trouble digesting the phrase "psychotically fast".
the speed of that little fucker was without empathy.
That would be 'sociopathically fast'.

OFFS. If you're responding to something that isn't the post immediately above, have the common decency to include a quote. If only for the link.

Many places even use divisions at the school level to keep schools with 3000 kids from statistically overwhelming schools with 500 kids.

Yeah, SC had 4 divisions when I started, and added a fifth for the largest of the large my senior year. We were about 1000-1200 students at the time and were in the 3A division (where 4A and then 5A were the biggest). There was still a ~100 student four year high school in my county with its tiny town constantly fighting to keep the district from shutting it down and sending those kids to my high school. But anyone who wanted to take AP courses had to come to my high school anyway.

You can't make me.

Also it was close to the end of the page and I didn't notice there were three more pages after.

That would be 'sociopathically fast'.
They're largely synonymous, with the most common definitions having 'psychopath' as someone who was basically born psychopathic, and a 'sociopath' becoming psychopathic because of childhood abuse, neglect, or trauma. Both are mostly deprecated as of DSM-V in favor of Antisocial Personality Disorder.

I agree with Warren, from a few posts up.
