Re: What is democracy?

Joe Biden has a good tailor. And of course Draghi who makes for a bella figura. No, no, no. Their clothes are “signalling.” Boris is saying he’s a gentleman. The other men are saying, “I’m an estate agent.” I don’t know what the women are saying but I’m getting the tightening in the scrotum that I ...

Re: Linkedin me up Scotty!

No shortage of personal shrinks

Ik combineer coaching met mijn expertise en ervaring als psycholoog. Waardoor ik diepte-coaching kan leveren.
Daarmee kan ik in korte tijd mensen zichzelf nog beter leren kennen. En effectiever blokkades opruimen, in werk en ook persoonlijk.

Re: Are you ready for POST BREXIT?

Half-time score

Brexit was a typically English revolution – one that left the elites unharmed

C++23

Re: Philosophy of Mathematics

Newton and Euler were the same person?? The acorn doesn’t fall from the tree. But Lagrange is closer. Nature is continuous, but the human brain is discrete. Example 1. Gradient descent (discrete), starting point for ML? [$]k = 1,2,3[$] 2. Continuous realisation of 1. [$]0 \lt t \lt \infty[$]

Re: Philosophy of Mathematics

We've all learned (discrete) Newton's method in kindergarten

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newton%27s_method

It is an iterative method and the nasty surprise is that it is the Euler method!

I suppose that the old-timers didn't have recourse to ODE solvers? Same with Cauchy's gradient descent.

Re: Apocalypse (Revelation) Biblical explanation.

I suspect his "Goodbye" will be followed by "And another thing..."
I don't think that word means what he thinks it means.
he's a bit like Colombo minus the humour.
