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

As jokes go, that’s not too bad! I’m deeply against right to life, especially for said bitches and those who put them there.

Re: The vaccines

There are all sorts of trade-offs here. The primary goal ought to be to keep the non-vaccinated away from each other as well as everybody else, so as to limit infections. The most direct way to do that is to reduce their number via vaccination. A suitable fine is one incentive in that direction. Ban...

Re: Philosophy of Mathematics

At least we don’t have to worry about knowing everything there is to know about finance. Which, of course brings to mind one of the timeless quotes from the master: “There is a theory which states that if anyone ever discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly di...

Re: The vaccines

Sweden that was an open society during all of covid (anti-lock down) in recent months has lowest death rates in Europe. We can speculate why, I think perhaps they got natural heard immunity, but too early to say. Vaccine % about same as in Norway, and we have way way higher death rates in Norway in...

And it may have been “perfectly legal” (although that is also disputed) because of bleeding head Republican gun laws.

He and the rifle travelled from his home in Illinois to Wisconsin, looking for someone to kill. And he found them.

Re: Biden and Harris - the first 100 days

And now they have a new role model in Kyle Rittenhouse, who goes free to shoot a few more rowdy liberals. In self defense, of course. Wherever he can track them down. There does seem to be a school of thought that KR should be locked up because certain people have made him their role model. I think...

Re: Interest Rates Options: can't reproduce market premiums given volatilities and discount curve

There are two parts to the answer, both having to do with compounding conventions. First, if you have a set of discount factors, you convert them into forward 3M money market (in the spirit of Libor) by [$] F(t,T_{i-1}, T_i) =( \frac{ P(t,T_{i-1})}{P(t,T_i)} -1 )/\delta [$], using your original nota...

Re: The vaccines

Your last post probably summarized what you were trying to convey. They claim to find that 38 out of 10 million people may have had a bad reaction to the vaccine, whereas 145 per 10 million who tested positive to Covid had a similar bad reaction. Thus, getting the vaccine is better than not, from th...

You know, you think 1/6 was just a big joke, and those who died probably would have done so anyway, and those Democrat politicians who weren’t killed will get their comeuppance soon enough. So, pretty boy Jake really should just be given the sort of slap on the wrist that naughty frat boys deserve w...
