In what Bizarro-world do *conclusions* count as "initial measurements?"
Oh, yeah, never mind, I know the answer to that one: in Lion World.

Proving yet again that you either DO NOT READ other people's posts or
that you are INCAPABLE of understanding them. In this case, as I've
said, I think the probability is *low.* Here, let me help you out, a
few messages back I said, quote:
"...probability of the catastrophic outcome (low)"
Clearly if you're incapable of even READING WHAT'S WRITTEN then the
whole probability / math / cost-adjusted consequences / expected
returns thing is going to be well beyond you.
Say it with me: "would you like cheese with that?"
