Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Boris Johnson says that China has perhaps dozens of times more cases than claimed. I wouldn't be surprised if that were actually the case. Given the tenuous relationship between the Chinese government and the truth. https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-boris-johnsons-government-reportedly-fu...

Re: Predictions for covid case count 12:01 AM 3/22/2020

I figured I should. Too busy with random bits of work, zoom meetings and family angst to keep up with all the cool discussions like the one about Euler's equation, but it's great to read them anyway. And the nice Monty Python reference!

Re: Predictions for covid case count 12:01 AM 3/22/2020

I heard that non-COVID ER visits have gotten a lot scarcer. Everyone's wondering, what happened to all the strokes and heart attacks? It's weird. But I guess some people are just riding it out at home because the idea of going to an ER packed with COVID patients is not so appealing. I've been tracki...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I think I said May 31 in the "prediction" thread, but it depends....NYC is still scoring 3 to 4 thousand *confirmed* new cases a day. They were trending down but then increased again in the past day - so basically a constant rate of new cases since March 22. New cases have to reduce several fold, ma...

Re: Stock scream room

lmao my favourite one is "Guys I Rebalanced (Moved Monies Out Of S&P 500)." How TF does that constitute rebalancing? That's the opposite of rebalancing. It's capitulation. Apparently as long as you have an “asset allocation,” you get to keep your Boglehead card — even if you time the market by dyna...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

I am 90% of my way through finishing the last math assignment I will ever have to do... for the rest of my life! By the way, infinite sequences and series suck. Like... a lot. Did you know that the sum of all positive integers from 1 to infinity is -1/12? Okay, fine, that's actually pretty interest...

Re: Coronavirus Conspiracy Theories

I wouldn't trust Russia numbers. But I also can easily believe they responded better to it than the US did. So what did they do in the way of "responding better"? I'm inclined to believe that plenty of politicians are taking advantage of the situation to promote themselves or pursue their favorite ...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Capture.JPG Is there an equivalent chart looking at deaths or hospitalizations? Total cases is more of a chart of how much testing is being done. That is exactly the problem - it's very hard to compare across countries, or even states with different testing policies. We're finding out now the exten...

Re: Predictions for covid case count 12:01 AM 3/22/2020

Not yet mountaineer! Here was your prediction: Peak date: April 22 Lift isolation date: May 13 Was there another one? Yes, in an earlier post I kept my 100,000 guess (for March 22 at 12:01am) that turned out to be a factor of 4 high, for midnight today (actually, for 12:01am tomorrow March 29). Tim...

Re: Who's had to rebalance?

Sorry frugal, but I could not possibly advise you....when I barely know what to do myself. I haven't rebalanced yet. Bonds & small caps still within 1% of crossing a band though, so....maybe soon.

Re: Kat Klub

That's the second photo of a masked cat that's been posted. Looks hilarious...but it HAS to be photoshopped! What cat wouldn't have that thing off in about a nanosecond? Smith, this is the puurrrfect opportunity to train your cat! Clicker training, or just try this to get them used to claw clipping....
