The level of naïveté is at an all time high on this board

Arsen is busy bringing this down to Delhommey's level.  Let him work his usual magic

Faultlines, Animal Spirits, Predictabily Irrational, Thinking Fast and Slow, Fooled by Randomness, The Black Swan, Beyond the Keynesian Endpoint, The Communist Manifesto, etc.
I am sorry that I am beneath your intelligence and that I do not own a computer, paragraphs and my cellphone what an inconvenience. Paragraphs, use your imagination because that is all you have when it comes to reality. You grasp to insults and not so witty cliches has me stomped. Please continue.

 

Delhommey's grasp of the English language (and mastery of statistics) is on full display in this thread.

 

This is what happens when he ventures outside of his wheelhouse (vapid snark)

Personal accountability is not a statistic to be considered much less measured as far as people like Delhommey are concerned.  Jase has started to hit on some metrics that would be indicative of motivation and how that drive behavior in an environment that allows for said outcomes.  

 

Kudos to him for bringing some actual meaning to a gross measure assumed to be valid of its own end.

Here's the table I promised, which implies a threshold effect that was mentioned in the harvard study, but not the article.

But even then, the threshold only catches 4 countries, there are numerous other factors and questions to be answered.

Thank you for daring to question the mighty stat. Next question would be... How was a death determined to be avoidable? How were these stats collected? What constitutes the measurable quantity and the decision to deem its importance insofar as how the qualitative conclusions are derived?

Until we even start to ask those questions, the rest of it is throwing poo against the wall to see what sticks.

We are among just a handful of countries with fat poor people.

Statistics. Correlation. Causality.

Someone missed their first day of class.

Apparently the number of failed predictions that a faith can endure is infinite

Jeez, if they could lock threads like these and put them in a time capsule for you fools to revisit in 20 years.... 

 

Have fun getting worked by these carnies at the IPCC

How many failed predictions will it take to get any of you to question your faith?

#2720094 pharrell calls tea party racist and other republican and rap related things

This thread showcases GSs wheelhouse.  If someone puts up a legitimate point of contention, the instant reaction is to conjure imagined (if not outright fabricated) associations with generally accepted pejorative stereotypes.  

 

Never you mind the fact that the original National Tea Party was co-founded and still led by a man that instantly challenges that notion of the organization being racist.  Never you mind the fact that this organization was started in 2007 in reaction to policies implemented by the Bush administration on the basis of how centralized federal government has far overstepped its Constitutional (and ethical) authority.  As soon as the White House flipped and sought to use those same policies for its own gain, the Tea Party was no longer republican malcontents, but universally racist bigots for which the propaganda drum was rolled out to full effect.

CWG would never be able to pick me out on the street with his preconceptions of what I am.

 

De facto prejudice, right there.... but.... you know... facts and all that crap
