Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Who cares? We have no way of verifying what is true and what is made up.

Re: UK going to the dogs

I suspect the Northwest settlement had more to do with PR damage control than with the likelihood of the lawsuit being successful.

Re: UK going to the dogs

Re: End of bitcoin?

At the risk of posting this in the wrong thread, I found this article interesting.  Is blockchain useless?  At least it discusses bitcoin a bit (half pun intended). I htink they got one thing wrong: "Bitcoin is what banking looked like in the middle ages". I'm pretty sure medieval banking was more ...

Re: Global Warming - Impacts, Vulnerability, Adaptation

I presume you've done your research, came to different conclusions and can share it with us?

Otherwise, you're just wasting everyone's time.

It's still about the Germans, isn't it?

Re: Global Warming - Impacts, Vulnerability, Adaptation

I don't know about you but I don't believe in democracy in science. 97% of CDO houses used Gaussian copula together with base correlation.

Re: Poland pays homage to the Gipper

It's nice to have allies, you know.
"Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations-entangling alliances with none."
Commerce they got. Can't wait until they get to the "peace and honest friendship" part!
