Re: which is MORE LIKELY?

That one reminds me of the one where a guy is going through some old boxes in the attic and he finds a repair ticket for some shoes he had forgotten about for 10 years at least. But he figures wtf...

Re: which is MORE LIKELY?

If someone is a plumber AND accountant, they are a subset of all accountants. They are also the exact same set as people who are accountants and plumbers. The order of terms does not logically...

Re: which is MORE LIKELY?

Right.
I’ve gotten: “a plumber because an accountant makes more money”
more than once.

Maybe I’m telling it wrong?

Re: which is MORE LIKELY?

I'm not sure if it's completely obvious (it is to me), but if you ran into a random person on the street, isn't it more likely that his name is "Bob" than "Bob Smith"? Any man named "Bob Smith" is...

Re: which is MORE LIKELY?

well, I won't keep you in suspense - as it's obviously A.

But, there is something to it.
The whole narrative exists only to bias the listener.
The question is answerable without any additional...

which is MORE LIKELY?

Hello - I haven't posted in a long time - retired from job - not programming much. But I saw this on FB lately and I like it, and I've run it past some friends.

I'm thinking I would love to give...

Re: Long Weekend

That is very much the case here, Steve.
I did mean it to be funny, but somehow the humor seemed to turn sour.

Really was trying to do the next guy a good turn, actually. Trying to leave the work...

Long Weekend

Long weekend coming up - the rest of my life!
("retiring" on April 14, which is also the day I started at this job 8 years previous, and is also my 65th birthday!).

It's been fun, it's been...

Re: The less you know, the higher your salary

Oops - I think I deleted Stevens last reply.
Accidental.
Not that I agreed with a word of it.

I don't see the comparison between Trump and Obama (or Trump and Hillary). You may not like them, or you may like one of them, but their fields of experience and knowledge of elected office and...

Re: So how about that Tim Cook?

So the discussion turns back to Trump again.
Understandable - everybody is talking Trump, love him or hate him - or both! The man scares (make that "terrifies") me, but on the other hand his...

Re: So how about that Tim Cook?

Well, reverse logic can work in either direction.
Maybe they want you to think that people will assume a ruse/conspiracy and wind up thinking that they CAN when they really CAN'T.

Re: So how about that Tim Cook?

It is not pedantic or sarcastic to point out that no two events are exactly the same, and that even small details are important. You want to say that X=Y because X is close enough to Y to be...

Yes I do. Completely and totally absurd.
Cases in history of exactly this occurrence (you'll forgive me if I allow the built in spell checker to do it's work) do not exist so I can't find one. I...

Re: So how about that Tim Cook?

Needless to say, I agree with both Alc and Steve.
There are a number of things at play here.
I believe that this issue in front of us now, has ENORMOUS implications.

Re: So how about that Tim Cook?

Trump has been very successful in finding the words to deflect the fusillade of arrows shot at him after each outrageous statement he makes - I'll give him that.

But I didn't really want to...

I think he's a hero.
His courage is admirable, in an extremely tenuous position.
I've suddenly developed a profound respect for the man I had heretofore considered a mere clone of Steve Jobs.

Re: Feel the Bern

I guess it depends on what is being counted.

You're counting all the delegates so far - I was remarking about the New Hampshire primary only.

Delegates (of 24):
