I have the best goddam COVID-19 modelling, forecasting and policy tool on Planet Earth. I did it on my little lonesome with a pencil and paper and (God forbid) Excel. It beats any other model out there bar none.

Physicist or mathematician?

Mathematician (possibly an armchair physicist on Sundays), Kurt Vonnegut reader.

Between a rock and a hard place.

Looking on as a disinterested observer in this model pandemic, I notice

1. Scientists apply their past experience to current situation.
2. As time goes on, the more 'embedded' they become (tunnel vision).

Or so it seems. It's a kind of Sapir-Whorfe phenomenon.

OK, then it's a physicist and an armchair mathematician on Sundays. A man, no doubts.
