Re: Impending Birth - Not Being Present

I subscribed to Netflix last X-mas to watch The Witcher a.k.a. Henry Cavill's buttocks, and cancelled the subscription in 2 weeks after watching the whole season twice :-D https://media.comicbook.com/2019/07/witcher-poster-butt-1177060-1280x0.jpeg I've somehow strayed away from the mainstream pop-cu...

Re: Time for BREXIT FAQ

I googled Austrian sense of humour to see if this was a good example. Boy, was it an eyeopener! Forget sense of humour, did you know that Austrian men pee sitting down?! It's all here: https://austrianadaptation.com/28-ways-to-be-austrian/ I thought most men sit down... If not, how do you turn the ...

Re: Ich bin der operator mit meinem pocket calculator

Actually, the English and the German word convey the same old (false) belief that... umm... mariposas eat cream/butter/schmetter from milk :-) AFAIR, mariposita is from some child game "Mari, posita" and has religious connotations (I coudn't find much information online to confirm it). Some proper S...

We call it гречка (buckwheat) - goes well with Bradwurst and Kraut.

No C++ treating everything as an object! ANSI C only. I know what I'm saying - I'm a Bayesian and OOP.

Re: Impending Birth - Not Being Present

I'm sure Fulmerspot will bring up a sound-minded frequentist baby, not some judgemental egotist expecting others to meet his imaginary conditions and treating them by his subjective priors.

Re: What is Borisism?

Out of curiosity, does what I wrote (except for the BDSM part) qualify as bullying/hysteria/celeriac? btw, root or stalks?

Re: What is Borisism?

Are you seriously implying that anyone here wishes another person to die?? It's making me feel nauseous. The guy needs to grow up and come to terms with his underachiever complex (just like every man). Good luck to him, but by the time he should shut up for the mutual good.

Re: What is Borisism?

He certainly didn't spend much time researching the (historically-loaded) subject of the correlation between IQ and race, not to mention the race vs genetics problem. And digging out the eugenics - the hauly grail of statistics! Seriously, what we know best about correlations in soft sciences is th...

Re: What is Borisism?

He is a poor lecturer, I will grant that. But that’s something I know about :) I like the news stories that say “His views on...have recently emerged.” Rather disingenuous. It’s the difference between a natural birth and a Caesarian. Boris Johnson adviser: 'Very real racial differences in intellige...

You guys! If Pavlov were around today he wouldn’t need dogs!
Cummings and Sabisky need some Skinner's conditioning, either negative punishment (dismissal) or positive punishment:

"As for race and IQ, I can only excuse the journalists here on the grounds of laziness, since the facts are perfectly clear to anyone who has researched the issue for more than 5 minutes (which I do appreciate is an awfully long time). ..."

Re: How good or bad are the pandemic warning models?

I admire women like your wife, Paul. They can immediately seat a man, which seems to be a necessary skill to maintain a normal relationship. I'd lay down with the ill husband and declare "We're dying together". With such an attitude in a few years you become convinced that your partner's world will ...

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

[...] The republicans, by contrast, have that Stepford Wife feel to them.  Ivanka Trump's has that relentless on-message monotone  that one suspects is the same selling real estate as talking about people dying in an opioid crisis. That's because mostly white middle-class Americans die from opioids.
