Yes, you did. Thanks Brian. Another concept here is luck. Good luck and bad luck determines so much of what happens in the world. We are not nearly as much in control of things as we sometimes think we are. A similar concept is Nassim Taleb's "black swan." The missed pop-up was kind of a black swan event -- totally unexpected and unprecedented and profound in its consequences.

No, I think you dropped the ball, Brian. The "Bermuda Triangle"
is not just a marine phenomenon. It afflicts ball fields, exam
halls, US Congress, Twitter., you name it.

Sanity, good intentions, clear communication all disappear
when sucked into its vortex. But, the B.T. is just an artifact of
this deterministic universe. Off in a parallel universe, one
blessedly free of the B.T., they're hog happy.

Wooooooo. Pig. Sooie!

That's one of the dumbest blogs I've ever read. Deep thoughts? More like deep scchhhhittt. LOL
