Re: Those crazeeeee Dutch

Aaron has written on the tulip bulb mania. I’d trust his research over most other people’s for something like this. Probably in Red Blooded Risk, but I could be wrong on that
You mean this? Show me the tulips.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

I think we should just cancel everything and wait for The Rapture. 
BTW, the 1991 version with Mimi Rogers and David Duchovny is superb!
Would that be the first or second rapture?

Re: Those crazeeeee Dutch

I first read about tulipmania years ago in a fiction story by a popular Polish author. Already at the time I found many research articles suggesting that it was a myth or at best a satire on the, nomen omen, blossoming society. Anyway, good for the Dutch - when Germans tried to starve them to death...

Re: Those crazeeeee Dutch

There Never Was a Real Tulip Fever The tulip mania was a myth invented by the Calvinist devils opposing the free market - ? I'm lost. Anyway: “Some of the stuff hasn’t lasted, like the idea that God punishes people who are overreaching by causing them to have the plague . That’s one of the things p...

Re: What Watch do You Wear?

That's so surreal. If my husband had a mistress, they would be both wearing concrete galoshes.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

He succeeded in making "can we cancel the election" an acceptable topic of discussion.

Re: Silly questions

This is probably an easy one to answer for the local stochastic experts here. Consider the n-dimensional (driftless) GBM [$]dx_t = \alpha dw_t[$] where [$]x_t \in \mathbb {R}^n[$], [$]w_t[$] is a standard Brownian motion and [$]x_0 \in \mathbb {R}^n[$] is an arbitrary starting value. [$]\alpha[$] is...
