    Default I've figured out something ...

    It's why so many supposedly intelligent IT bods on this board seem so stupid when they argue.
    It's because they still have a 19th century view of the world where they believe it is deterministic. According to these simpletons if only they look at the "rules" long and hard enough, they'll figure out how it works.
    What they haven't figured out is that the world operates on a probabilistic and random model, not a determinist one.
    Hard Brexit now!

    I think it is because it is an anonymous public forum where any sort of debate is swamped with loads of stupid posts.

    Could we not have a serious forum or something?

    Of course we can. Should we? Now there is a debate - lets see how serious that stays!!!

    Some of us regard this as the lighter side of life - but yes, it is a bit tedious at times wading through silly posts and duplicate threads with slightly altered "comedy" titles.

    My "deterministic" two penneth worth ends here.

    Surely that depends on the argument?

    Surely the lighter side of life should be in light relief?

    All this thinking makes my head hurt - I think I need a lie down.....
