Re: Are you a bedwetter?

Re: Lock-down confessions

I think not confessing is a good starting point!

I am not  confessing to anything without a lawyer present. (Although rather boringly I have absolutely nothing to confess to in this instance!)

If the Orange County Police are reading this, "Alan" is not the Alan Lewis of Newport Beach, CA, author of well known books on volatility modelling.

Re: How should we deal with the coronavirus pandemic?

Of course she's a leftie, climate-change activist. This is getting tedious. I don't think his minor rule breaking is a good enough reason for resigning. But not declaring a potential conflict of interest is. (I.e. a friend-with-benefits activist who is part of the climate change cult.) If he’d kept ...

Re: How should we deal with the coronavirus pandemic?

Neil Ferguson resigns from SAGE panel Because he broke lockdown rules. This is a silly reason to resign. If he's such a genius give him a slap on the wrist.
