Re: How good or bad are the pandemic warning models?

A good read on modeling the spreading risk of covid-19 also the data is available here Poor study, imho, and not innovative at all (which isn't wrong by itself). Microstructure models with correlations of population characteristics are the only way to get convincing results rather than "believe" ("...

Re: How good or bad are the pandemic warning models?

I was concerned about this one: 3 new cases of COVID-19 in Singapore: a 41-year-old Singaporean who was the first one reported not to have any known links to previous cases , and two Yong Thai Hang employees That would potentially mean another infection cluster. The fact that such clusters form (aro...

Re: Impending Birth - Not Being Present

I subscribed to Netflix last X-mas to watch The Witcher a.k.a. Henry Cavill's buttocks, and cancelled the subscription in 2 weeks after watching the whole season twice :-D https://media.comicbook.com/2019/07/witcher-poster-butt-1177060-1280x0.jpeg I've somehow strayed away from the mainstream pop-cu...

Re: Time for BREXIT FAQ

I googled Austrian sense of humour to see if this was a good example. Boy, was it an eyeopener! Forget sense of humour, did you know that Austrian men pee sitting down?! It's all here: https://austrianadaptation.com/28-ways-to-be-austrian/ I thought most men sit down... If not, how do you turn the ...

Re: Ich bin der operator mit meinem pocket calculator

Actually, the English and the German word convey the same old (false) belief that... umm... mariposas eat cream/butter/schmetter from milk :-) AFAIR, mariposita is from some child game "Mari, posita" and has religious connotations (I coudn't find much information online to confirm it). Some proper S...

We call it гречка (buckwheat) - goes well with Bradwurst and Kraut.

No C++ treating everything as an object! ANSI C only. I know what I'm saying - I'm a Bayesian and OOP.

Re: Impending Birth - Not Being Present

I'm sure Fulmerspot will bring up a sound-minded frequentist baby, not some judgemental egotist expecting others to meet his imaginary conditions and treating them by his subjective priors.

Out of curiosity, does what I wrote (except for the BDSM part) qualify as bullying/hysteria/celeriac? btw, root or stalks?

Re: What is Borisism?

Are you seriously implying that anyone here wishes another person to die?? It's making me feel nauseous. The guy needs to grow up and come to terms with his underachiever complex (just like every man). Good luck to him, but by the time he should shut up for the mutual good.

Re: What is Borisism?

He certainly didn't spend much time researching the (historically-loaded) subject of the correlation between IQ and race, not to mention the race vs genetics problem. And digging out the eugenics - the hauly grail of statistics! Seriously, what we know best about correlations in soft sciences is th...

He is a poor lecturer, I will grant that. But that’s something I know about :) I like the news stories that say “His views on...have recently emerged.” Rather disingenuous. It’s the difference between a natural birth and a Caesarian. Boris Johnson adviser: 'Very real racial differences in intellige...
