Japan (America) fact of the day

1 Comment

So consider the amount of standard daily doses of opioids consumed in Japan. And then double it. And then double it again. And then double it again. And then double it again. And then double it a fifth time. That would make Japan No. 2 in the world, behind the United States.

That is from German Lopez at Vox.

The post Japan (America) fact of the day appeared first on Marginal REVOLUTION.

Agreed. I started laughing at "as soon as I started talking about how Trump could win the race." But I stopped laughing when I read the text between the panels. Apparently Adams actually said these things, though not via his comic. http://www.avclub.com/article/mra-dilbert-says-what-scott-adams-actually-thinkin-229970

It's quotes from Scott Adams' blog. He really said these things.

Someone actually bothered to make this. Is that person's time really that worthless?

Well, you took the time to read it, share it to Newsblur, and comment on the Tumblr, so what does that say about your time?

Mr Adams has plenty of spare time these days.

And a history of making sock-puppet accounts to pretend to be a big fan of his own work!

Can you solve the frog riddle?

1 Comment

From TED Ed: Can you solve the frog riddle?

You’re stranded in a rainforest, and you’ve eaten a poisonous mushroom. To save your life, you need an antidote excreted by a certain species of frog. Unfortunately, only the female frog produces the antidote. The male and female look identical, but the male frog has a distinctive croak. Derek Abbott shows how to use conditional probability to make sure you lick the right frog and get out alive.

Why not just lick every frog of that species that you see?

Yes, it took a lot of work to make the cards and pieces, but it's worth it--the players are way more thorough than the tax prep people ever were.

I feel this way about the 19xx board game series. At some point it's just too complex and becomes work.

Or whatever's handy! I'm pretty much pure alcohol and water, so it doesn't really matter!
