Every quant should know why MADs are circular And must MADs be at ground level? Are MADs in downcomer trays allowed (btw not circular, why not?) Knowing how many downcomer distillers in the world, calculate the number of gas stations in USA.

You can't work there unless you know this stuff cold. Start with the New York Times Almanac of Record. Learn every fact by heart, then you wil be ready for the phone interview.

Knowing how many downcomer distillers in the world, calculate the number of gas stations in USA.So many calculations for the new year! The gas station = f(downcomer distillers) is really tricky. We've got a local oil refinery complex with more than a dozen largish distillation columns. They produce pretty flames and bad smells! But I'd wager that more than half the output of all the distillation capacity goes directly to the local airport, not local gas stations, which biases the calculation.MAGs in downcomer trays are NOT circular for the same reason that MAGs in streets ARE circular. It's all about usability and good design patterns, right?

Does this mean I should use a Celtic calendar to compute options expiration dates? And if so, it will bring new meaning to triple-witching day.
