Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

There was a thread on 2p2 about a year ago by a guy who claimed to have won the lottery for about $80 mil. Think it was in OOT or lol lounge.

Search function is aids so I can't seem to find it, but the threade was allowed to stay up for like a year so I assumed there was a thin chance it wasn't a troll op.

more imo. I have no idea how many dollars I have. If you take any amount of dollars that I wouldnt notice missing it wont affect my happiness. When it becomes an amount I could/would notice then it starts mattering. marginal dollars already have no impact on my happiness.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

fine, but you'd care x amount if I took $1000 out of your pocket right now, more than you'd care if I did the same if you had $1m (i'm assuming you're a poor schmoe like the rest of us)

..

take that x and divide it by 1000, thats a good approximation of the utility of a marginal dollar to you.

but now youre using a linear approximation rather than a diminishing or non-linear approximation which is where the whole debate started. In reality, I think utility from a marginal dollar is huge until basic needs are met, then steadily, but slowly diminishing until you live comfortably, then flattens out a lot more beyond that which supports the theory of diminishing marginal utility. However, I think there are MASSIVE spikes at certain numbers that would make you happier. I imagine that people, on average, have increased satisfaction the first time they become a millionaire or billionaire just in knowing they accomplished that somewhat arbitrary goal. Also, if you were the richest man in the world by $1 I bet that you would be happier than if you were in 2nd by $1. The percent of your wealth that this would encompass is immeasurably small, but the satisfaction of knowing you are the richest person in the world is probably a measurable spike in utility. Likewise, if I was $1 short of being able to afford an NFL team I would be MUCHHHHHH less happy than if I had enough to buy one and owned a team. So while there are diminishing returns, I think they are overstated and at certain values the return from a marginal dollar is extremely high, and likely higher than the value of an extra dollar to someone like me or you even if it is 100,000x more impactful to our wealth than theirs.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Don't know what I expected but Doha was larger than I anticipated. I don't know where the 2022 world cup thread is but if they can't keep their airport terminal properly air conditioned I have no clue how they will do it with entire (modular lol) soccer stadiums. Though the logistical coordination they pull off as they await construction of the new terminal is impressive. Currently every flight busses people to and from the Tarmac. Maybe over a thousand busses. It's insane.

Doha's got like 1.5 million people. 'Bout the size of Philly or Phoenix, so that's definitely bigger than I thought as well.

Lottery numbers are randomly drawn. But randomly drawn numbers form patterns that can be tracked and used to our advantage. Having carefully analyzed all the drawings in past lotto results of more than 190 different lotto games worldwide, with histories going back as far as 1955, Gail Howard has verified the following incredibly simple rule:

That which is MOST POSSIBLE happens MOST OFTEN.
That which is LEAST POSSIBLE happens LEAST OFTEN.
The key to Gail Howard's successful lotto number selection methods is playing the probabilities. If you play a pattern that occurs only five percent of the time, you can expect that pattern to lose 95 percent of the time, giving you no chance to win 95 percent of the time. So, don't buck the probabilities.
amazing
