"No brainer" (Icahn)

I really hate that term. It implies that a decision is so obvious that the details don't need to be thought about.

The trouble is, it's the possibilities that you didn't think about that later pop up and bite you on the bum.

It's not a good decision-making method when large amounts of money are at stake.
