On being wrong
« on: May 20, 2012, 12:20:52 am »
This is a really great talk, and I am amused because she opens the talk with an anecdote about a road trip from Providence, RI to Portland, OR. http://www.ted.com/talks/kathryn_schulz_on_being_wrong.html
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

Haven't seen the videos, but love the blog and will have to read more.
If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.
