1st and only intuition test

Average age of people on a commercial plane. Answer without sources or reason.. or don't answer at all.

Ps why don't we measure people's snap decisions?

How many times more common are snap decisions?

Right. A knee jerk reaction is to rely on tools of measurement. BUT! Most opinions don't make it that far obv.

35

Usually people that travel tend to be either for jobs or tourism or vacations hence families with kids or younger people tourists or active people in jobs that tend to not be the older people in their fields and definitely not the retired age yet and the much older people tend not to travel as often. Also the personnel minus pilots is definitely in the younger side often.

So the guess (if regarding US) must be a bit lower than the avg US age. Given the life expectancy currently is near 75-80 that means the population avg is near 37-38 etc hence a bit less than that.

No reason? Since when a person like me can answer without reasoning in anything. Even if fast or wrong i always reason a bit. Not only that but i also tend to revisit all positions constantly. I also take my time picking clothes and choosing things because a lot of hard choices out there lol. Then i think wtf am i wasting precious time on debating what to buy and it gets even more tilting. The time you think what is the optimal buy in some category should be spent making more money or designing profitable ideas but because making more money typically hurts society its f it all and go to scientific society right away damn it.

Re: 1st and only intuition test

It all depends. How far away from the farting anus are you measuring? I bet it's 110 decibels if you put the ear immediately in harm's way.

We do. Why don't we measure whether people know that we measure people's snap decisions?

LOL. Dont you mean 17^(1/2)*Pi+e^2-e-1/2^(1/2) when you include post Standard model first order corrections? Rounding to 17 is acceptable for practical purposes though.

Re: 1st and only intuition test

17 is a prime number. It is considered improper to start a sentence using a number*.

prime.num


*scientific-writing-avoid-starting-sentences-with-a-number-or-abbreviation

This has been a public service announcement from the SMP overseer. Any misunderstanding of the above is on the head of the reader. Also, may you choke and die on your own snap decisions. The world needs less and less people. Especially those that rely solely on snap decisions. Was it a snap decision on my part to post all the above?

I didn't. I ended the sentence with a number. The words at the beginning of the sentence were silent, like the 'p' in pneumonia.

Re: 1st and only intuition test

The silent and undetectable letter/word is like a noiseless fart, you only notice it when the stench reaches the noise.

Re: 1st and only intuition test

Zeno is the Shakespeare of 2+2.

Brilliant.

Like Julia farting in Romeo's face.

Like king Lear having an accident when we really hope he would not.
