Flaneur: focus on probability (philosophy), probability (mathematics), probability (logic),probability (reallife), deadlifts, Phoenician wine, dead languages.
2) Another error about Covid: thinking that since mortality is lower for the young and/or healthy, that the SEVERITY will be necessarily lower for them. Do not conflate survival & severity rates.
A severe error in reasoning both in the Covid-denying cranks & their respondents: "All these reactions for a virus that *only* (sic) killed 500K". Without the said reactions (public & private) the death rate would have been much, much higher (both directly and indirectly).
Friends, a nice way to start the week with an elegant integrand. There are as many ways to solve the integral of sin[x]/x as they are ways to mess up a trading strategy. Again, please limit to math comments. [Pollution of the feed with cute & non-math related remarks = block].
Explain to me why we should spent taxpayer money to bailout companies (airlines) who spent their cash buying their own stock so the CEO gets optionality, instead of having a crisis buffer. We should bail out individuals based on needs, not corporations. #Moralhazard
ATTENTION SALARYPEOPLE Next Friday when your guaranteed monthly paycheck is deposited, take a moment of gratitude for the entrepreneurs who took the risks so you get this risk-free income. Shaming an risk-taker for losing money is like shaming a soldier for losing a limb.
MASKS One comment about masks and nonlinearities that these imbeciles are not getting. Reducing exposure to viruses by 30% thanks to an "imperfect" mask does not mean reducing risk of contracting the disease by just 30%. By convexity, it must be more than 30%, can even be 95%.
