This looks simple and promising: an ultrasound dryer.
Also repels mice, dogs, and bats!

finally hope for older quants also:

 "Scientists have discovered how to make old human cells young again through rejuvenation. It’s an exciting discovery that could change the way humans age."

https://www.rt.com/news/409314-old-cell ... akthrough/

"and their telomeres - the caps on the ends of the chromosomes that shorten as we age -  are now longer, as they are in young cells."

will we see  even more fresh quant ideas again (from the same refreshed people ?) ! if one lived long enough one would potentially discover all was re-inventions...

You mean 1930 Great Depression, 2008 Financial Crisis, and not 1930 again?

Quant finance is over, the current tech du jour which is supposed to save us is AI. Both stem from the same dream: to dump difficult decision making on machines.

I add GANs (generative adversarial networks) to the list. (If I write that I want to kill the creators of this technique, will the ML snowflakes, who eat only ethically killed animals and get triggered by the word NIPS, report me to the police?)
(no photoshop, no hairbrush, not even a shower today! :-D)

Hopefully they will stop testing Botox on animals before I start to wrinkle - or I will have to age with dignity.

Mr Clean magic eraser. If Deflandre had really wanted to make it big he should have partnered up with someone to introduce the magic eraser to the UK. I have to get mine through Amazon.
