Re: Physicists, Stop the Churlishness

I prefer physicists to brawl with philosophers rather than muck about with finance.
Lambs in the midst of wolves.
Luke 10:3

Besides, the physicists are doing OK brawling among themselves.

Re: Are you a bedwetter?

Definitely Brexit would never have happened if the UK had not been included in the 1973 EC enlargement.
Unless they joined earlier, or later. 1973 was the right time; strikes, 3-day work weeks and Slade.

Re: The Wilmott Philosophy Thread

In April, Andersen interviewed Krauss about “the sudden, public antagonism between philosophy and physics” and  posted the results at the Atlantic  . “What drove me to write this book,” Krauss reportedly told him, “was this discovery that the nature of ‘nothing’ had changed, that we’ve discovered t...

It began earlier this spring when a philosopher (David Albert) gave a  sharply negative review  in this paper to a book by a physicist (Lawrence Kraus...

Re: You are rich, privately educated and intelligent. So why do you vote Socialist?

Not all of them vote "Socialist" To some extent, Cummings can be seen as a typical Oxford-educated Tory toff.
