Does anyone else ever turn over a paper lying around and see something like this?:

At least there aren't any Greek letters or integrals in there.

Hmmm, the guy from "A Beautiful Mind" had papers like these lying around before he started living in that abandoned shed. Watch out, Scott ...

I have an irrational fear of losing it from that movie. But ultimately I'm not that smart--my sanity couldn't be less threatened by the distance between my brain use and its potential. I do think I'm probably smarter than Russell Crowe though.

Hey, are you the famous author of The Missing Class? http://www.amazon.com/Missing-Class-Portraits-Near-America/dp/0807041408/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1302903806&sr=8-3

When you win your Nobel Prize for Literature, please don't make Maria Teresa stand there in the Stockholm auditorium by herself while you give your acceptance speech.

You may be smarter than Russell Crowe, but can you throw a phone as far as he can?

No, I'm not the author of that book. That person has "Tan" as his middle name, and as you can see above I do not, ipso facto, no connection.

Are you simply making a self-deprecatory joke or trying to show off?

I used formulas like this throughout my undergraduate education and well beyond, and so did anyone majoring in engineering, physics, etc.

The important thing is, how accurately do these formulas describe reality, in your case social and economic reality?

So much of the discussion of the economy is sound bites with no context or data behind them. Yet so much of the commonly cited economic theory also makes "heroic" (I'm being polite) assumptions like "rational man", "perfect information" and other such nonsense.

I don't know which is worse. Although I certainly prefer an intelligent, well-informed open-minded discussion partner to an ideologue.
