Incidentally, it's "Edge of Tomorrow", and it's a time-travel conceit wrapped up in an alien invasion.  Like Source Code, but somehow worse.

Fuck it, imma move to Iceland.

Well sure, but the lines are drawn.  Unless "undecided" means "I'm probably not going to vote for either", I really don't see someone unsure of who they prefer at this point.

Just.... Wow.

It still bewilders me that someone can be undecided at this point.

I misread your initial question, so I deleted my answer as to not sound pedantic.

I believe the simplified expression is on the left because probabilities, for some reason, are read right to left.

Because this is Bayes' theorem, I believe it's interpreted as "The probability of the event happening is equal to the conditions relating to that event."

Jeez, I hope that was the answer you're looking for.

(makes a mental note to expand into statistics and probability classes)

I'm off to a orientation tour at the new jerb. I find out what my actual assignment will be on Thursday.

Much as it is amusing to watch, I feel obligated to point out she apologized for kvetching.

I done has one Libertarian on my FB feed that does this, fairly well.

Every response of substance is responded to with a dodge and a new topic or goalpost, only tangentially related to the previous. 

However, it is very amusing to stubbornly refuse to change playing fields, and insist he stays on topic.

-totally forgot that a negative number squared has a positive answer.

Hide the keys, say "Nope, plan for that extra half hour or so.  No big deal."

At least you're doing it for a degree.

This stuff has literally NO application to either my work or any of my current hobbies.

I'm retaking algebra for FUN.
