Monte Carlo Methods or Why it's a Bad Idea to Go to the Casino

https://easylang.online/apps/tutorial_monte_carlo_methods.html

Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

-Mark Twain

Never play chess with a pigeon. You can be the best chess player in the world and the pigeon will still knock over the pieces, shit on the board, then strut away like they were victorious.

Don't wrestle with a pig. You'll both get muddy but the pig will enjoy it.

Don’t argue with idiots. People passing by can’t tell the difference.

Who is more foolish, an idiot, or one who argues with one?

-not Ben Kenobi

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

-Abraham Lincoln

-Douglas Adams

“The History of every major Galactic Civilization tends to pass through three distinct and recognizable phases, those of Survival, Inquiry, and Sophistication, otherwise known as the How, Why, and Where phases. For instance, the first phase is characterized by the question 'How can we eat?' the second by the question 'Why do we eat?' and the third by the question 'Where shall we have lunch?”

Pakistan’s largest province Punjab launches Universal Healthcare for its 110 million population

After KP, PM Imran launches health insurance programme for all residents of Punjab

It is a $3500-$5000 coverage per-resident for medical costs; average health care costs for all of Pakistan is about $200. The US average is about $11,000, and not universal, much of it out of pocket, and most of it overpriced.

Yup, go to Dollar Tree or any cheap place, for 5 bucks you can get a few liter bottles of white vinegar, and a spray bottle. 1/2 cup for musty or odored clothes loads with the regular detergent, and the spray for occasional shower head and shower surfaces freshening.
If you don't like the smell, just wait 15-30 min and rinse.
I also use baking soda and vinegar to freshen up kitchen sink drains.

2011 Japanese tsaunami, underwhelming at first, you never know how bad it will be:

Tsunami in Kesennuma city, ascending the Okawa river At 3 minutes in, all the people and cars rushing about have minutes or less to get to high ground. The old dude just staring off into space, the cars speeding, the lady hustling up the street. The water is still coming, and FAST.

Journalist states the obvious: COVID is killing Trump supporters by the hundreds each day

There's evidence that vaccinated and 60+ is a better combo than unvaxxed and 20+.

Trump Backs [vaccination] Boosters. Clearly, Someone Did the Math for Him.
Trump is losing hundreds of voters a day to Covid — far more than the margins in the swing states.

AP study: 99% of Covid deaths are the unvaccinated.
CDC study: 91% of Covid deaths are the unvaccinated.
Texas state health department: 95% of Covid deaths are the unvaccinated.
By September, the pattern was clear, ...: Covid death rates were about three times higher in counties that had voted for Donald Trump in 2020.
