Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

The fucking toad is at it again (see e.g. McCain). We can only hope for a final solution. And it is funny that the flunky who took out the Gambini crime boss is a Trump acolyte.

Re: Brexit - the last 50 days

The little shit (aka Donald Trump Jr) is mocking May for not taking his father's advice on how to negotiate (declare bankruptcy and sue the other party, then rinse and repeat!). While May deserves plenty of mocking, this is just silly.

Re: Education advice for a wannabe quant

You certainly don't need a math PhD to become a finance quant, whatever that may mean these days. And, vice versa, most math PhDs are entirely unsuited to be quants. It is helpful to have an engineering mindset, but that is hard to acquire through studying, although studying some engineering topics ...

Re: Brexit - the last 50 days

"Game of Thrones" or "Brexit"? Tough choice. Now if "Brexit" had more nudity there'd be no contest.
Theresa May and nudity seem like a bad combination.

At the risk of undermining the scientific integrity of your process, what result would you like to get?

Re: Stupid question of the day

Am invited to an Arabian Nights theme party. What can I wear that isn’t insulting or cultural appropriation? Or should I just drop these friends? Clearly they are not as woke as I. Sounds fun.  Some options: 1) Magician - you even know magic tricks! 2) Sea serpent - blue and green glittery, scaly c...

Re: Yalies no longer the great unwashed

The poor are more likely to sleep under bridges, beg in the streets, and steal bread, though, so maybe it balances out.

Re: News from the 'Border'

In NYC, St Patrick's Day is engaged in a long standing annual competition with SantaCon for the greatest extent of public drunken debauchery in the streets. As far as I can tell, the only difference is the color of the attire.

Re: Reality Check

Leaving your visa/immigration status aside, it sounds like you are pretty good at doing a job that you hate, and probably not particularly qualified for the kind of job that you want. A master's degree is on the low end of quant qualifications, obviously depending slightly on the specific school and...

Re: Reality Check

OK - so that means you have a rather short fuse for obtaining a green card. Even shorter than history would suggest, given the insanity currently ruling the country. Is that important to you, or are you happy going back to wherever you came from? Is your current employer willing and able to sponsor ...

Re: Reality Check

You mention OPT - what’s your current status? That would seem pretty relevant to the question at hand.

She seems worthy. Norwegian politicians (who make up the deciding committee) can be fickle, though.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

I don't strongly disagree. I am down to a rate of less than once per day now, so improving. But no, I would not expect rooftop shouting from Mueller & team. Impeachment, at least in its modern form, is a political process, so agree no particular chance for that to come through with the current congr...

Re: Are you ready for Brexit?

So, it is evidently terribly undemocratic to allow the public another vote after circumstances have, if not changed, at least been greatly clarified. But trying to ram the same bill through the same session of the House of Commons multiple times in a few weeks with nothing having changed is just lik...
