    I guess at this point he had achieved all of the goals, made tons of money and thought it would always be easy to make more if push came to shove. It would be hard to maintain the old level of intensity.

    the Mike Tyson who destroyed Michael Spinks would have given any top 10 ATG issues.

    Tyson, when he was utilizing combos, and especially body shots was a fu*king monster.

    Yeah it seems like it could be worked out with the ADA for reasonable requirements for blind people without changing the entire test.

    But you dont deploy without factoring the variables you control. I just worked on an eglint/signit deployment -- if someone asked me, did you make sure it integrated with the costumers receiver to ensure they can mediate the data, and i simply say yes because our receivers always work with our LPDA's - i would be an idiot. My point is, you deploy with as much information as you can, and the deal with everything else with contingencies.

    absolutely right.

    in all my life, I would have to say that RJJ was the closest to superhuman.

    Maybe in the future :)

    It's not yet fully public. Still under construction.

    This is a great city for interviewing engineers though. I've got 4 lined up after this weekend, each with a very different perspective. Start-up guys, outdoorsman, real estate managers, etc.

    Radar and communication systems specifically use uncertainty to work. If I design a portfolio of stocks and bonds, I don't know what the stock/bond market is going to do, but I have some idea of the variance of the stock market, its trend, its skewness and kurtosis and I have constraints provided by the customer, but I am still quite uncertain what is going to happen once I push play. Even if I find some sort of a cointegration, that might collapse at any moment.

    The entire field of robust engineering works under uncertainty. This is not the same as a contingency: that would be worst case, which is a way of implementing a system robustly, but the field has moved well beyond that point because worst case systems suck. Allowing for uncertainty gives way better performance subject to probabilistic bounds on things like failure etc.

    Roger that. Gentrification is a bitch. Up the street from here, friends who lived in the same place 10 years at least (can't remember exactly) had the place they rented sold, and got booted out. It might be the best thing that ever happened to them though. House prices aren't nearly as bad here as the rest of the country so they finally bought their own. Re: my earlier mention of not seeing the point, everyone's circumstances are different when it comes to the value of home ownership.

    Meh, I agree that short, shredded dudes (see: Paul Harris, Sean Sherk) are just cool in combat sports, but you can see that by turning on the NFL any day, even back then.

    Mike Tyson is nothing athletically compared to Adrian Peterson, Bo Jackson, Todd Gurley, Herschel Walker, etc.
