Well, as long as the advice is to switch away from Vim, why Sublime Text?  There are SCADS of GUI text editors on the planet that have all sorts of nifty features, and they cost less than $70.

Besides, you miss out on these gems:

Reading through this list, I agree with the post title how these things "screw up everything we do".  There is literally nothing I can think of that would escape irrational bias.  I can totally recognize many of the biases I have noticed in myself and others, mostly due to the reactions I have to someone else's bias.  ;D
Usually what happens is; sometimes I don't notice my bias and just go with the flow, sometimes I see it, but just accept it because really there's no compelling reason to change, other times I instinctively react against it because I can see how irrational it is, which often causes unwanted friction with others who are (in my probably biased opinion) being irrationally biased.

So what would it be like to live with no irrational cognitive biases?  Boring?  Enlightened?  Insane?  I really wonder...

Well, that was quick...  (still on the waiting list, though).
