==Introduction==<br />

----<br />
==The Common Law==<br />
See the Blackstone quote on this, and compare to Bentham. See Posner's article "Blackstone and Bentham". <br />
<br />
Lord Diplock said in 1966, <br />
{{Quotation| After all, that is the beauty of the common law; it is a maze, not a motorway.}} ''Morris v. C.W.Martin,'' 1 QB 716 (Diplock, L. J. , 1966). A [https://heinonline.org/HOL/LandingPage?handle=hein.journals/artniqul3&div=49&id=&page= bailment case. ] <br />
<br />
‘The great crime which the moneyed classes and promoters of industry committed.....was the condemning of the workers to ugliness....formless and ugly surroundings, ugly ideals, ugly religion....ugly relationships between workers and employers’. (DH Lawrence).<br />
<br />

<br />
==Liberals and Humor==<br />
Liberals also hate humor, and have for many years. In the French 3rd Republic, even, the humorists were the conservatives.<br />
https://quillette.com/2021/01/07/the-death-of-political-cartooning-and-why-it-matters/<br />
<br />
Remember the joke about how man yfeminists it takes to cahnge a light bulb. <br />
<br />
--------------------------------------------<br />
<br />
==Recycling and Garbage Worship==<br />
Liberals love garbage. Also, they like to have lots of garbage cans everywhere. They like bright blue or red plastic recycling bins to litter the streets and hallways. <br />
<br />
==Liberals and Toilets==<br />
Liberals like having handicapped toilets everywhere.<br />
<br />
*[https://twitter.com/pegobry/status/1454142452500140045 "A sign your civilization may be decadent: the urinals 150 years ago were more beautiful than the public monuments today."]Nec Divinos@LColubrum A public urinal in Paris, France, 1875. (twitter 2021).<br />
<br />
==Liberals and Ramps==<br />
The Americans with Disabilities Act has results in ugly ramps everywhere.<br />
<br />
==Liberals and Gender-Neutered Language==<br />
Liberals like to say "he and she" or "he/she" or "they" instead of "he". They have no ear for the music and rhythm and nuance of language; it is all political. Orwell's 1984 is about this as much as about using language to oppress. The Newspeak language is ugly as well as constraining. <br />
<br />
==Liberals and the Bible==<br />
They got rid of "thee" and "thou" and picturesque language.<br />
<br />
----<br />
==Liberals the Visual Arts==<br />
*[https://newcriterion.com/issues/2021/12/between-art-revolution Lenoir's French Revolution museum] to rescue French art. New Criterion (2021). <br />
<br />
----<br />
<br />
==Liberals and the Liberal Arts==<br />
Liberals put no value on beauty, only on ideology, in the books and poems they read.<br />
<br />
==Architecture==<br />
*[https://www.worksinprogress.co/issue/against-the-survival-of-the-prettiest/ "Against the survival of the prettiest,"]<br />
Samuel Hughes (2022) arguing against the survivorship bias theory of why old buildings are not so often ugly. <br />

Abstract: With the merger of law and equity almost complete, the idea of equity as a special part of our legal system or a mode of decision-making has fallen out of view. This Article argues that much of equity is best understood as performing a vital function. Equity and related parts of the law solve complex and uncertain problems—including interdependent behavior and misuses of legal rules by opportunists—and do so in a characteristic fashion: as meta-law. From unconscionability to injunctions, equity makes reference to, supplements, and sometimes overrides the result that law would otherwise produce, while primary law operates without reference to equity. Equity operates on a domain of fraud, accident, and mistake, and employs triggers such as bad faith and disproportionate hardship to toggle into a “meta”-mode of more open-ended scrutiny. This Article provides a theoretical account of how a hybrid law, consisting of relatively simple and general primary-level law and relatively intense and directed second-order equity can regulate behavior better through these specialized modes than would homogeneous law alone. The Article tests this theory on the ostensibly most unpromising aspects of equity, the traditional equitable maxims, as well as equitable fraud, defenses, and remedies. Equity as meta-law sheds light on how the fusion of law and equity spawned multifactor balancing tests, polarized interpretation, and led to the confusion of equity with standards, discretion, purely public law, and “mere” remedies. Viewing equity as meta-law also improves on the tradeoff between formalism and contextualism and ultimately promotes the rule of law.<br />

{{Quotation| We propose and empirically test a theory for the endogenous formation and persistence of large<br />
states, using China as an example. We suggest that the relative timing of the emergence of agricultural societies and their distance to each other set off a race between autochthonous state-building<br />
projects and the expansion of neighboring (proto-)states. Using a novel dataset on the Chinese<br />
state’s historical presence, the timing of agricultural adoption, social complexity, climate, and geography across 1×1 degree grid cells in East Asia, we provide empirical support for this hypothesis.<br />
Specifically, we find that on average, cells that adopted agriculture earlier or were close to the earliest archaic state in East Asia (Erlitou) remained longer under Sinitic control. In contrast, earlier<br />
adoption of agriculture decreased the persistent control of the Chinese state in cells farther than<br />
2.8 weeks of travel from Erlitou.}}<br />

==The December 2021 Liberal Pivot, Repudiating everything they claimed before==<br />
Here is what they say now, suddenly all pivoting at once: <br />
<pre><br />
1. Cloth masks are ineffective against omicron (Leanna Wen, CNN);<br />
2. The vaccinated can spread and get covid;<br />
3. The death rate is comparable to the flu (Chris Hayes);<br />
4. Many people are entering hospitals with covid, not from covid (Fauci);<br />
5. Natural immunity is a reason omicron hasn’t been as virulent (Fauci);<br />
6. We have to take into account societal needs, not just spread prevention (CDC);<br />
7. The asymptomatic should not be tested (NFL);<br />

{{Quotation|<br />
On the car ride home, Dash says “Our powers make us special,” to which Helen (Mrs. Incredible) says, “Everyone is special, Dash”. Dash retorts back to her, “Which is another way of saying that no one is.” This is not just the opinion of a frustrated little boy, he is parroting the frustrations of his father who later on is arguing that a 4th grade graduation ceremony is silly (in his words, psychotic) because, “They keep celebrating new ways to celebrate mediocrity, but if someone is genuinely exceptional, they shut him down because they don’t want everyone else to feel back!” And lastly, this theme comes to a head when Syndrome is planning on giving everyone superpowers with his tech and claiming, “When everyone is super, no one will be.” ... Not everyone is special, understand, everyone is important, everyone is valid, and everyone is even significant, but not everyone is special. }}<br />

*<i>Steps in solving word problems: </i>1. Figure out what the question is and what kind of number is supposed to be the answer. 2. Figure out which numbers in the question are relevant--- some numbers might well be irrelevant to getting to the answer. 3. Figure out what techniques you are going to need, e.g., addition, division, Python coding, looking up something on the Internet. <br />

The coronavirus diameter is .06-.14 micrometer. It is a fairly large virus ( [https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0021850220300987 Ou. et al. 2020]). A big question is why, from a physics point of view, a mask should be more effective against exhaled particles than inhaled ones. After all, the air a person breathes out has to get into the room somehow eventually. <br />
<br />
What is needed is good studies of mask filtration of the relevant size particle. The studies we have don't seem satisfactory. I wouldn't believe any of the epidemiological studies, since there are too many confounding variables. <br />
<br />
*[https://www.medpagetoday.com/infectiousdisease/infectioncontrol/16278 2009 Medpage Today] article on use of masks against disease and during surgery, A very balanced article that discusses conflicting studies. <br />
<br />
*[https://www.wired.com/story/how-masks-went-from-dont-wear-to-must-have/ Wired magazine] had a good pro-mask article that lays out the flip-flop in recommendations and tries to justify them. Note that [https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0021850220300987 Ou. et al. 2020] does not in fact really say masks work, because they tested for up to .4 diameter particles and that article's main purpose is to look at how to clean masks. <br />
<br />
*[https://www.pnas.org/content/118/4/e2014564118 Howard et al ] (2021) is a big survey article, especially useful for its list of articles-- but it surveys the bad as well as the good studies. It is focussed on droplets, or aerosols defined as up to 4 micrometers, so almost everything is irrelevant for small aerosol transmission. <br />
<br />
*[https://cnsnews.com/commentary/dr-jim-meehan/surgeon-destroys-myth-if-masks-dont-work-why-do-surgeons-wear-them Dr. Meehan] strongly says that masks are useless against viruses and describes how surgeons wear special masks in high-oxygen conditions to prevent droplets even though studies hve shown masks reduce the surgeon's performance. (March 10, 2021). He is not especially an authority. <br />
<br />
*[https://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/its-not-just-about-the-masks/ Good op-ed] on the folly of masks in the American Conservative (August 2021), including the switch from when it was Trump's vaccine to Biden's, the folly of cleaning surfaces, etc.<br />
<br />

==Who Is Vulnerable?==<br />
[https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid_weekly/index.htm CDC Tables] show that 2020-early2021, covid19 deaths were 13% of deaths from all causes for people aged 50-64, and 20% for those aged over 85.

==All Odd Numbers Are Prime (The Polya Conjecture)==<br />
An engineer, a physicist, a mathematician, a psychologist, a sociologist, a law professor, and a grievance studies professor walk into a bar, and someone offers to buy a drink for whoever has the best proof that all numbers are prime. <br />
<br />
The engineer says, "1’s a prime, 3’s a prime, 5’s a prime, 7’s a prime, so all odd numbers are prime."<br />
<br />
The physicist says: ‘1’s a prime, 3’s a prime, 5’s a prime, 7’s a prime, 9’s not a prime --hmmm, but let's go on---11's a prime, 13's a prime.. It must be that 9 was measurement error. <br />
<br />
The mathematician says: "1’s a prime, 3’s a prime, 5’s a prime, 7’s a prime. Therefore, by induction, all odd numbers are prime."<br />
<br />
The psychologist says: "I told my R.A. the result we wanted, and having rechecked his work, he now reports that 1’s a prime, 3’s a prime, 5’s a prime, 7’s a prime, 9's a prime, 11's a prime, 13's a prime, 15's a prime, and so is every other odd number."<br />
<br />
The sociologist says: "1’s a prime, 3’s a prime, 5’s a prime, 7’s a prime, 9's a prime,..."<br />
<br />
The law professor says,"First of all, my billing rate is $400/hour, and it runs for every 15-minute increment..."<br />
<br />
The grievance studies professor says: "What's a prime number?"<br />
<br />
.<br><br />
THE END<br />
<br />
.<br><br />
''Notes:''<br><br />
1. A prime number is a number greater than 1 that is evenly divisible only by itself and 1.<br><br />
2. Engineers are known for being satisfied with equations and other mathematical conclusions that are only approximately true, not exactly true. Physicists are known for thinking a lot about how precisely their instruments measure things. Mathematicians are known for being very proud of how exact and rigorous they are, but for making mistakes sometimes anyway. Psychologists are known for publishing fraudulent results and for pressuring subordinates to make up data. Sociologists are known for lack of mathematical ability. Lawyers are known for their high fees. Grievance studies professors ar known for being even worse at math than sociologists. All of these are stereotypes; whether the stereotypes have any truth in them, you must judge. Someone is free to add my own field, "economics" to the joke. Accounting may have possibilities too. <br />
<br><br />
3. The 1919 [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P%C3%B3lya_conjecture Polya Conjecture], made by the author of the famous 1945 book, [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/How_to_Solve_It ''How To Solve It''], was that over half of the numbers less than any number N have an odd number of prime factors. For example there are eight numbers less than<br />
N = 9. Of those eight numbers, the number 1 has an even number of prime factors--- [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parity_of_zero 0 of them]. The number 2 has an odd number (1 of them), as do 3 (1 of them), 5 (1 of them), 7 (1 of them), and 8 (3 of them--- 2, 2, and 2, the 2's being counted three times for this conjecture). The number 4 has an even number (2 of them--- 2 and 2), as does 6 (2 of them--- 2 and 3). So over 50% of numbers less than 9--- five out of eight--- have an odd number of prime factors. Professor Connell wrote Mathematica code to check N = 10,000,000 and found that 5,000,421 of the numbers less than that have an odd number of prime factors, which is still more than half. But the Polya Conjecture is false. C. Brian Haselgrove disproved it in 1958. R. Sherman Lehman found the first explicit counterexample in 1960: N = 906,180,359. The smallest counterexample is N = 906,150,257, found by Minoru Tanaka in 1980.<br />

==The Black Sheep in Scotland==<br />
A philosopher, a physicist, a mathematician and a computer scientist were travelling on a train through Scotland when they saw a black sheep through the window of the train. "Aha," says the philosopher, "I see that Scottish sheep are black." "Hmm," says the physicist, "You mean *some* Scottish sheep are black." "No," says the mathematician, "All we know is that there is *at least one* sheep in Scotland, and that *at least one side* of that sheep is black!"<br />

==The Joke Convention==<br />
(Here write my better version, the Joke Convention, with the jolly guy rolling on the floor who hadn't heard it before.)<br />
<br />
George Stigler's version in "The Conference Handbook" Journal of Political Economv, 1977, vol. 85, no. 2, is <br />
{{Quotation| <br />
There is an ancient joke about the two traveling salesmen in the age of<br />
the train. The younger drummer was being initiated into the social life<br />
of the traveler by the older. They proceeded to the smoking parlor on the<br />
train, where a group of drummers were congregated. One said, "87,"<br />
and a wave of laughter went through the group. The older drummer<br />
explained to the younger that they traveled together so often that they<br />
had numbered their jokes. The younger drummer wished to participate<br />
in the event and diffidently ventured to say, "36." He was greeted by<br />
cool silence. The older drummer took him aside and explained that they<br />
had already heard that joke. (In another version, the younger drummer<br />
was told that he had told the joke badly.)<br />
}}<br />
<br />
Stigler published an economists' version. I've improved it here, in the spirit of joketelling: <br />
<br />
<pre><br />
Introductory Remarks <br><br />
A. Here is what the author was trying to say. <br><br />
B. The paper admirably solves the problem which it sets for itself. <br />
Unfortunately, this was the wrong problem. <br><br />
C. What a pity that the vast erudition and industry of the author were so <br />
misdirected <br><br />
<br />
D. I am an amateur in this field so my remarks must be diffident and<br />
tentative. However, even a novice must find much to quarrel with in<br />
this piece.<br />
E. I can be very sympathetic with the author; until 2 years ago I was<br />
thinking along similar lines.<br />
F. It is good to have a nonspecialist looking at our problem. There is<br />
always a chance of a fresh viewpoint, although usually, as in this<br />
case, the advantages of the division of labor are reaffirmed.<br />
G. This paper contains much that is new and much that is good.<br />
H. Although the paper was promised 3 weeks ago, I received it as I<br />
entered this room.<br />
Comments<br />
1. Adam Smith said that.<br />
2. Unfortunately, there is an identification problem which is not dealt<br />
with adequately in the paper.<br />
3. The residuals are clearly nonnormal and the specification of the<br />
model is incorrect.<br />
4. Theorizing is not fruitful at this stage: we need a series of case<br />
studies.<br />
5. Case studies are a clue, but no real progress can be made until a<br />
model of the process is constructed.<br />
6. The second-best consideration would of course vitiate the argument.<br />
7. That is an index number problem (obs., except in Cambridge).<br />
8. Have you tried two-stage least squares?<br />
9. The conclusions change if you introduce uncertainty.<br />
10. You didn't use probit analysis?<br />
11. I proved the main results in a paper published years ago.<br />
12. The analysis is marred by a failure to distinguish transitory and<br />
permanent components.<br />
13. The market cannot, of course, deal satisfactorily with that externality.<br />
14. But what if transaction costs are not zero?<br />
15. That follows from the Coase theorem.<br />
16. Of course, if you allow for the investment in human capital, the<br />
entire picture changes.<br />
17. Of course the demand function is quite inelastic.<br />
18. Of course the supply function is highly inelastic.<br />
19. The author uses a sledgehammer to crack a peanut.<br />
20. What empirical finding would contradict your theory?<br />
21. The central argument is not only a tautology, it is false.<br />
22. What happens when you extend the analysis to the later (or earlier)<br />
period? <br />
23. The motivation of the agents in this theory is so narrowly egotistic<br />
that it cannot possibly explain the behavior of real people.<br />
24. The flabby economic actor in this impressionistic model should be<br />
replaced by the utility-maximizing individual.<br />
25. Did you have any trouble in inverting the singular matrix?<br />
2 6. It was unfortunate that the wrong choice was made between M1 and<br />
M2.<br />
27. That is alright in theory, but it doesn't work out in practice (use<br />
sparingly).<br />
28. The speaker apparently believes that there is still one free lunch.<br />
29. The problem cannot be dealt with by partial equilibrium methods:<br />
it requires a general equilibrium formulation.<br />
30. The paper is rigidly confined by the paradigm of neoclassical<br />
economics, so large parts of urgent reality are outside its comprehension.<br />
31. The conclusion rests on the assumption of fixed tastes, but of course<br />
tastes have surely changed.<br />
32. The trouble with the present situation is that the property rights<br />
have not been fully assigned. <br />

The number 2 has an odd number (1 of them), as do 3 (1 of them), 5 (1 of them), 7 (1 of them), and 8 (3 of them--- 2, 2, and 2, the 2's being counted three times for this conjecture). The number 4 has an even number (2 of them--- 2 and 2), as does 6 (2 of them--- 2 and 3). So over 50% of numbers less than 9--- five out of eight--- have an odd number of prime factors. Professor Connell wrote Mathematica code to check N = 10,000,000 and found that 5,000,421 of the numbers less than that have an odd number of prime factors, which is still more than half. But the Polya Conjecture is false. C. Brian Haselgrove disproved it in 1958. R. Sherman Lehman found the first explicit counterexample in 1960: N = 906,180,359. The smallest counterexample is N = 906,150,257, found by Minoru Tanaka in 1980.<br />

==The Black Sheep in Scotland==<br />
A philosopher, a physicist, a mathematician and a computer scientist were travelling on a train through Scotland when they saw a black sheep through the window of the train. "Aha," says the philosopher, "I see that Scottish sheep are black." "Hmm," says the physicist, "You mean *some* Scottish sheep are black." "No," says the mathematician, "All we know is that there is *at least one* sheep in Scotland, and that *at least one side* of that sheep is black!"<br />

==The Politics of the Value-Added Tax (attributed to Larry Summers)==<br />
The reason the United States, unlike European countries and Canada, doesn't have a value-added tax is that the Democrats think it's regressive and the Republicans think it makes raising tax revenue easy. <br><br />
When *will* the United States get a value-added tax? Once the Republicans realize it's regressive and the Democrats realize it makes raising tax revenue easy.<br />

==The Joke Convention==<br />

<br />
George Stigler's version in "The Conference Handbook" Journal of Political Economv, 1977, vol. 85, no. 2, is <br />
{{Quotation| <br />
There is an ancient joke about the two traveling salesmen in the age of<br />
the train. The younger drummer was being initiated into the social life<br />
of the traveler by the older. They proceeded to the smoking parlor on the<br />
train, where a group of drummers were congregated. One said, "87,"<br />
and a wave of laughter went through the group. The older drummer<br />
explained to the younger that they traveled together so often that they<br />
had numbered their jokes. The younger drummer wished to participate<br />
in the event and diffidently ventured to say, "36." He was greeted by<br />
cool silence. The older drummer took him aside and explained that they<br />
had already heard that joke. (In another version, the younger drummer<br />
was told that he had told the joke badly.)<br />
}}<br />
<br />
Stigler published an economists' version. I've improved it here, in the spirit of joketelling: <br />
<br />
Introductory Remarks <br><br />
A. Here is what the author was trying to say. <br><br />
B. The paper admirably solves the problem which it sets for itself. <br />
Unfortunately, this was the wrong problem. <br><br />
C. What a pity that the vast erudition and industry of the author were so <br />
misdirected <br><br />
<br />
D. I am an amateur in this field so my remarks must be diffident and<br />
tentative. However, even a novice must find much to quarrel with in<br />
this piece.<br />
E. I can be very sympathetic with the author; until 2 years ago I was<br />
thinking along similar lines.<br />
F. It is good to have a nonspecialist looking at our problem. There is<br />
always a chance of a fresh viewpoint, although usually, as in this<br />
case, the advantages of the division of labor are reaffirmed.<br />
G. This paper contains much that is new and much that is good.<br />
H. Although the paper was promised 3 weeks ago, I received it as I<br />
entered this room.<br />
Comments<br />
1. Adam Smith said that.<br />
2. Unfortunately, there is an identification problem which is not dealt<br />
with adequately in the paper.<br />
3. The residuals are clearly nonnormal and the specification of the<br />
model is incorrect.<br />
4. Theorizing is not fruitful at this stage: we need a series of case<br />
studies.<br />
5. Case studies are a clue, but no real progress can be made until a<br />
model of the process is constructed.<br />
6. The second-best consideration would of course vitiate the argument.<br />
7. That is an index number problem (obs., except in Cambridge).<br />
8. Have you tried two-stage least squares?<br />
9. The conclusions change if you introduce uncertainty.<br />
10. You didn't use probit analysis?<br />
11. I proved the main results in a paper published years ago.<br />
12. The analysis is marred by a failure to distinguish transitory and<br />
permanent components.<br />
13. The market cannot, of course, deal satisfactorily with that externality.<br />
14. But what if transaction costs are not zero?<br />
15. That follows from the Coase theorem.<br />
16. Of course, if you allow for the investment in human capital, the<br />
entire picture changes.<br />
17. Of course the demand function is quite inelastic.<br />
18. Of course the supply function is highly inelastic.<br />
19. The author uses a sledgehammer to crack a peanut.<br />
20. What empirical finding would contradict your theory?<br />
21. The central argument is not only a tautology, it is false.<br />
22. What happens when you extend the analysis to the later (or earlier)<br />
period? <br />
23. The motivation of the agents in this theory is so narrowly egotistic<br />
that it cannot possibly explain the behavior of real people.<br />
24. The flabby economic actor in this impressionistic model should be<br />
replaced by the utility-maximizing individual.<br />
25. Did you have any trouble in inverting the singular matrix?<br />
2 6. It was unfortunate that the wrong choice was made between M1 and<br />
M2.<br />
27. That is alright in theory, but it doesn't work out in practice (use<br />
sparingly).<br />
28. The speaker apparently believes that there is still one free lunch.<br />
29. The problem cannot be dealt with by partial equilibrium methods:<br />
it requires a general equilibrium formulation.<br />
30. The paper is rigidly confined by the paradigm of neoclassical<br />
economics, so large parts of urgent reality are outside its comprehension.<br />
31. The conclusion rests on the assumption of fixed tastes, but of course<br />
tastes have surely changed.<br />
32. The trouble with the present situation is that the property rights<br />
have not been fully assigned. <br />

==All Odd Numbers Are Prime (The Polya Conjecture)==<br />
An engineer, a physicist, a mathematician, a psychologist, a sociologist, a law professor, and a grievance studies professor walk into a bar, and someone offers to buy a drink for whoever has the best proof that all numbers are prime. <br />
<br />
The engineer says, "1’s a prime, 3’s a prime, 5’s a prime, 7’s a prime, so all odd numbers are prime."<br />
<br />
The physicist says: ‘1’s a prime, 3’s a prime, 5’s a prime, 7’s a prime, 9’s not a prime --hmmm, but let's go on---11's a prime, 13's a prime.. It must be that 9 was measurement error. <br />
<br />
The mathematician says: "1’s a prime, 3’s a prime, 5’s a prime, 7’s a prime. Therefore, by induction, all odd numbers are prime."<br />
<br />
The psychologist says: "I told my R.A. the result we wanted, and having rechecked his work, he now reports that 1’s a prime, 3’s a prime, 5’s a prime, 7’s a prime, 9's a prime, 11's a prime, 13's a prime, 15's a prime, and so is every other odd number."<br />
<br />
The sociologist says: "1’s a prime, 3’s a prime, 5’s a prime, 7’s a prime, 9's a prime,..."<br />
<br />
The law professor says,"First of all, my billing rate is $400/hour, and it runs for every 15-minute increment..."<br />
<br />
The grievance studies professor says: "What's a prime number?"<br />
<br />
.<br><br />
THE END<br />
<br />
.<br><br />
''Notes:''<br><br />
1. A prime number is a number greater than 1 that is evenly divisible only by itself and 1.<br><br />
2. Engineers are known for being satisfied with equations and other mathematical conclusions that are only approximately true, not exactly true. Physicists are known for thinking a lot about how precisely their instruments measure things. Mathematicians are known for being very proud of how exact and rigorous they are, but for making mistakes sometimes anyway. Psychologists are known for publishing fraudulent results and for pressuring subordinates to make up data. Sociologists are known for lack of mathematical ability. Lawyers are known for their high fees. Grievance studies professors ar known for being even worse at math than sociologists. All of these are stereotypes; whether the stereotypes have any truth in them, you must judge. Someone is free to add my own field, "economics" to the joke. Accounting may have possibilities too. <br />
<br><br />
3. The 1919 [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P%C3%B3lya_conjecture Polya Conjecture], made by the author of the famous 1945 book, [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/How_to_Solve_It ''How To Solve It''], was that over half of the numbers less than any number N have an odd number of prime factors. For example there are eight numbers less than<br />
N = 9. Of those eight numbers, the number 1 has an even number of prime factors--- [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parity_of_zero 0 of them]. The number 2 has an odd number (1 of them), as do 3 (1 of them), 5 (1 of them), 7 (1 of them), and 8 (3 of them--- 2, 2, and 2, the 2's being counted three times for this conjecture). The number 4 has an even number (2 of them--- 2 and 2), as does 6 (2 of them--- 2 and 3). So over 50% of numbers less than 9--- five out of eight--- have an odd number of prime factors. Professor Connell wrote Mathematica code to check N = 10,000,000 and found that 5,000,421 of the numbers less than that have an odd number of prime factors, which is still more than half. But the Polya Conjecture is false. C. Brian Haselgrove disproved it in 1958. R. Sherman Lehman found the first explicit counterexample in 1960: N = 906,180,359. The smallest counterexample is N = 906,150,257, found by Minoru Tanaka in 1980.<br />

23. The motivation of the agents in this theory is so narrowly egotistic<br />
that it cannot possibly explain the behavior of real people.<br />
24. The flabby economic actor in this impressionistic model should be<br />
replaced by the utility-maximizing individual.<br />
25. Did you have any trouble in inverting the singular matrix?<br />
2 6. It was unfortunate that the wrong choice was made between M1 and<br />
M2.<br />
27. That is alright in theory, but it doesn't work out in practice (use<br />
sparingly).<br />
28. The speaker apparently believes that there is still one free lunch.<br />
29. The problem cannot be dealt with by partial equilibrium methods:<br />
it requires a general equilibrium formulation.<br />
30. The paper is rigidly confined by the paradigm of neoclassical<br />
economics, so large parts of urgent reality are outside its comprehension.<br />
31. The conclusion rests on the assumption of fixed tastes, but of course<br />
tastes have surely changed.<br />
32. The trouble with the present situation is that the property rights<br />
have not been fully assigned. <br />

==All Odd Numbers Are Prime (The Polya Conjecture)==<br />
An engineer, a physicist, a mathematician, a psychologist, a sociologist, a law professor, and a grievance studies professor walk into a bar, and someone offers to buy a drink for whoever has the best proof that all numbers are prime. <br />
<br />
The engineer says, "1’s a prime, 3’s a prime, 5’s a prime, 7’s a prime, so all odd numbers are prime."<br />
<br />
The physicist says: ‘1’s a prime, 3’s a prime, 5’s a prime, 7’s a prime, 9’s not a prime --hmmm, but let's go on---11's a prime, 13's a prime.. It must be that 9 was measurement error. <br />
<br />
The mathematician says: "1’s a prime, 3’s a prime, 5’s a prime, 7’s a prime. Therefore, by induction, all odd numbers are prime."<br />
<br />
The psychologist says: "I told my R.A. the result we wanted, and having rechecked his work, he now reports that 1’s a prime, 3’s a prime, 5’s a prime, 7’s a prime, 9's a prime, 11's a prime, 13's a prime, 15's a prime, and so is every other odd number."<br />
<br />
The sociologist says: "1’s a prime, 3’s a prime, 5’s a prime, 7’s a prime, 9's a prime,..."<br />
<br />
The law professor says,"First of all, my billing rate is $400/hour, and it runs for every 15-minute increment..."<br />
<br />
The grievance studies professor says: "What's a prime number?"<br />
<br />
.<br><br />
THE END<br />
<br />
.<br><br />
''Notes:''<br><br />
1. A prime number is a number greater than 1 that is evenly divisible only by itself and 1.<br><br />
2. Engineers are known for being satisfied with equations and other mathematical conclusions that are only approximately true, not exactly true. Physicists are known for thinking a lot about how precisely their instruments measure things. Mathematicians are known for being very proud of how exact and rigorous they are, but for making mistakes sometimes anyway. Psychologists are known for publishing fraudulent results and for pressuring subordinates to make up data. Sociologists are known for lack of mathematical ability. Lawyers are known for their high fees. Grievance studies professors ar known for being even worse at math than sociologists. All of these are stereotypes; whether the stereotypes have any truth in them, you must judge. Someone is free to add my own field, "economics" to the joke. Accounting may have possibilities too. <br />
<br><br />
3. The 1919 [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P%C3%B3lya_conjecture Polya Conjecture], made by the author of the famous 1945 book, [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/How_to_Solve_It ''How To Solve It''], was that over half of the numbers less than any number N have an odd number of prime factors. For example there are eight numbers less than<br />
N = 9. Of those eight numbers, the number 1 has an even number of prime factors--- [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parity_of_zero 0 of them]. The number 2 has an odd number (1 of them), as do 3 (1 of them), 5 (1 of them), 7 (1 of them), and 8 (3 of them--- 2, 2, and 2, the 2's being counted three times for this conjecture). The number 4 has an even number (2 of them--- 2 and 2), as does 6 (2 of them--- 2 and 3). So over 50% of numbers less than 9--- five out of eight--- have an odd number of prime factors. Professor Connell wrote Mathematica code to check N = 10,000,000 and found that 5,000,421 of the numbers less than that have an odd number of prime factors, which is still more than half. But the Polya Conjecture is false. C. Brian Haselgrove disproved it in 1958. R. Sherman Lehman found the first explicit counterexample in 1960: N = 906,180,359. The smallest counterexample is N = 906,150,257, found by Minoru Tanaka in 1980.<br />

==The Black Sheep in Scotland==<br />
A philosopher, a physicist, a mathematician and a computer scientist were travelling on a train through Scotland when they saw a black sheep through the window of the train. "Aha," says the philosopher, "I see that Scottish sheep are black." "Hmm," says the physicist, "You mean *some* Scottish sheep are black." "No," says the mathematician, "All we know is that there is *at least one* sheep in Scotland, and that *at least one side* of that sheep is black!"<br />

==The Politics of the Value-Added Tax (attributed to Larry Summers)==<br />
The reason the United States, unlike European countries and Canada, doesn't have a value-added tax is that the Democrats think it's regressive and the Republicans think it makes raising tax revenue easy. <br><br />
When *will* the United States get a value-added tax? Once the Republicans realize it's regressive and the Democrats realize it makes raising tax revenue easy.<br />

==The Hand of God Knocking off the Chair==<br />
A college professor stood up on his chair and said, "If God really exists, then knock me off this chair". Nothing happened and he said, "See, I'll give it a couple more minutes". A MARINE vet stood up, punched the professor and knocked him off the chair, and then sat back down. The professor said, "What did you do that for?" The vet said, "GOD was busy protecting my buddies still fighting for your right to say and do stupid stuff like this, so HE SENT ME!<br />
<br />
== Elephants Hiding in Trees==<br />

==The Joke Convention==<br />
(Here write my better version, the Joke Convention, with the jolly guy rolling ont he floor who hadn't heard it befre.)<br />
<br />
George Stigler's version in "The Conference Handbook" Journal of Political Economv, 1977, vol. 85, no. 2, is <br />
{{Quotation| <br />
There is an ancient joke about the two traveling salesmen in the age of<br />
the train. The younger drummer was being initiated into the social life<br />
of the traveler by the older. They proceeded to the smoking parlor on the<br />
train, where a group of drummers were congregated. One said, "87,"<br />
and a wave of laughter went through the group. The older drummer<br />
explained to the younger that they traveled together so often that they<br />
had numbered their jokes. The younger drummer wished to participate<br />
in the event and diffidently ventured to say, "36." He was greeted by<br />
cool silence. The older drummer took him aside and explained that they<br />
had already heard that joke. (In another version, the younger drummer<br />
was told that he had told the joke badly.)<br />
}}<br />
<br />
Stigler published an economists' version. I've improved it here, in the spirit of joketelling: <br />
<br />
Introductory Remarks <br><br />
A. Here is what the author was trying to say. <br><br />
B. The paper admirably solves the problem which it sets for itself. <br />
Unfortunately, this was the wrong problem. <br><br />
C. What a pity that the vast erudition and industry of the author were so <br />
misdirected <br><br />
<br />
D. I am an amateur in this field so my remarks must be diffident and<br />
tentative. However, even a novice must find much to quarrel with in<br />
this piece.<br />
E. I can be very sympathetic with the author; until 2 years ago I was<br />
thinking along similar lines.<br />
F. It is good to have a nonspecialist looking at our problem. There is<br />
always a chance of a fresh viewpoint, although usually, as in this<br />
case, the advantages of the division of labor are reaffirmed.<br />
G. This paper contains much that is new and much that is good.<br />
H. Although the paper was promised 3 weeks ago, I received it as I<br />
entered this room.<br />
Comments<br />
1. Adam Smith said that.<br />
2. Unfortunately, there is an identification problem which is not dealt<br />
with adequately in the paper.<br />
3. The residuals are clearly nonnormal and the specification of the<br />
model is incorrect.<br />
4. Theorizing is not fruitful at this stage: we need a series of case<br />
studies.<br />
5. Case studies are a clue, but no real progress can be made until a<br />
model of the process is constructed.<br />
6. The second-best consideration would of course vitiate the argument.<br />
7. That is an index number problem (obs., except in Cambridge).<br />
8. Have you tried two-stage least squares?<br />
9. The conclusions change if you introduce uncertainty.<br />
10. You didn't use probit analysis?<br />
11. I proved the main results in a paper published years ago.<br />
12. The analysis is marred by a failure to distinguish transitory and<br />
permanent components.<br />
13. The market cannot, of course, deal satisfactorily with that externality.<br />
14. But what if transaction costs are not zero?<br />
15. That follows from the Coase theorem.<br />
16. Of course, if you allow for the investment in human capital, the<br />
entire picture changes.<br />
17. Of course the demand function is quite inelastic.<br />
18. Of course the supply function is highly inelastic.<br />
19. The author uses a sledgehammer to crack a peanut.<br />
20. What empirical finding would contradict your theory?<br />
21. The central argument is not only a tautology, it is false.<br />
22. What happens when you extend the analysis to the later (or earlier)<br />
period? <br />
23. The motivation of the agents in this theory is so narrowly egotistic<br />
that it cannot possibly explain the behavior of real people.<br />
24. The flabby economic actor in this impressionistic model should be<br />
replaced by the utility-maximizing individual.<br />
25. Did you have any trouble in inverting the singular matrix?<br />
2 6. It was unfortunate that the wrong choice was made between M1 and<br />
M2.<br />
27. That is alright in theory, but it doesn't work out in practice (use<br />
sparingly).<br />
28. The speaker apparently believes that there is still one free lunch.<br />
29. The problem cannot be dealt with by partial equilibrium methods:<br />
it requires a general equilibrium formulation.<br />
30. The paper is rigidly confined by the paradigm of neoclassical<br />
economics, so large parts of urgent reality are outside its comprehension.<br />
31. The conclusion rests on the assumption of fixed tastes, but of course<br />
tastes have surely changed.<br />
32. The trouble with the present situation is that the property rights<br />
have not been fully assigned. <br />

Abstract: With the merger of law and equity almost complete, the idea of equity as a special part of our legal system or a mode of decision-making has fallen out of view. This Article argues that much of equity is best understood as performing a vital function. Equity and related parts of the law solve complex and uncertain problems—including interdependent behavior and misuses of legal rules by opportunists—and do so in a characteristic fashion: as meta-law. From unconscionability to injunctions, equity makes reference to, supplements, and sometimes overrides the result that law would otherwise produce, while primary law operates without reference to equity. Equity operates on a domain of fraud, accident, and mistake, and employs triggers such as bad faith and disproportionate hardship to toggle into a “meta”-mode of more open-ended scrutiny. This Article provides a theoretical account of how a hybrid law, consisting of relatively simple and general primary-level law and relatively intense and directed second-order equity can regulate behavior better through these specialized modes than would homogeneous law alone. The Article tests this theory on the ostensibly most unpromising aspects of equity, the traditional equitable maxims, as well as equitable fraud, defenses, and remedies. Equity as meta-law sheds light on how the fusion of law and equity spawned multifactor balancing tests, polarized interpretation, and led to the confusion of equity with standards, discretion, purely public law, and “mere” remedies. Viewing equity as meta-law also improves on the tradeoff between formalism and contextualism and ultimately promotes the rule of law.<br />

{{Quotation| We propose and empirically test a theory for the endogenous formation and persistence of large<br />
states, using China as an example. We suggest that the relative timing of the emergence of agricultural societies and their distance to each other set off a race between autochthonous state-building<br />
projects and the expansion of neighboring (proto-)states. Using a novel dataset on the Chinese<br />
state’s historical presence, the timing of agricultural adoption, social complexity, climate, and geography across 1×1 degree grid cells in East Asia, we provide empirical support for this hypothesis.<br />
Specifically, we find that on average, cells that adopted agriculture earlier or were close to the earliest archaic state in East Asia (Erlitou) remained longer under Sinitic control. In contrast, earlier<br />
adoption of agriculture decreased the persistent control of the Chinese state in cells farther than<br />
2.8 weeks of travel from Erlitou.}}<br />

Adobe itself is an unpleasant company that writes bad software and has moved its pdf-writing software on line, probably to better rip off customers and harvest their information. Their reader is purposely limited and unsatisfactory and they write poor software anyway. I've tried Foxit and been disappointed for some reason, and PDF-XChange Editor was bad enough for some reason I forget that I decided it wasn't minimally satisfactory.
