Re: Martingale Correction

Your notation leaves a little bit to be desired, but if I make a reasonable guess as to what you are suggesting doing, I think it’s OK. Not great, but probably OK. There are thick yellow books and innumerable papers dedicated to the topic of efficient Monte Carlo simulation. Your approach may be men...

Re: Modern Science Unable to Explain Mysterious Coincidences

They say it’s not significant, but I did note that they observed the fewest cases among those born in May. Between that and never having smoked any kind of tobacco (or worked with asbestos) I feel pretty good about my chances against lung cancer. Especially given that it appears in a competing hazar...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

With the Supreme Court clearing the way for Trump’s tax returns to be handed over to Cyrus Vance Jr. and team, there is a significant increase in the probability of his conviction for tax evasion, bank fraud and insurance fraud. Not quite as sexy as treason, but if it was good enough for Al Capone I...

Re: Politicized science

Hmm. I had grown comfortable with my “resident alien” status. I have a friend who was classified as an “exceptional alien”. I believe he has an extra antenna.

Re: Are you ready for POST BREXIT?

I think you are right. It did accomplish what Bannon, Farage and JRM set out to do. As for those who voted in favor, that’s probably more of a mixed bag.

Re: Are you ready for POST BREXIT?

I’m reminded of the old Johnny Carson line: “Don’t judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes. Because by then, he’ll be a mile away and have no shoes.”

Re: Random Republican WINGNUTS (or RRWs as they are affectionately known as)

It's only a song.  You are obssessed. I used to sing German songs in German on stage in the 60s (to thunderdous applause) but TBH I preferred Rogers and Hammerstein. www.youtube.com/watch?v=vlDpF7jKGPA We learned it at summer school in Donegal. BTW does BREXIT have an anthem yet? I’m thinking “Spre...
