Stats query - how many lepers 'til sainthood?

Recommended Posts

I was just thinking: how many people with a chronic illness would I have to lay hands on, before I would 'miraculously' cure at least three?

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

Indeed. It would be a much better use of your time than asking strangers on the internet about it. Go forth!

In your case, certainly. Lacking any concept of mathematics, or expected value.

Depends on the chronic disease and its stage.

 

Lepers with missing limbs and then you lay your hand on them and they regrow those limbs? Approximately infinite.

Borderline Type II Diabetes without nephropathy or opthalmopathy where they suddenly go and exercise and eat well afterward? Closer to a real number.

Well, no. That's right. Because people on the internet, much like people you see in the street, who maybe look a bit funny. Up to something I'd say. Definitely conspiring.

Lay your hands on? That sounds most worrisome. You may be a leper too. Having your two dislodged hands placed on some ill person is rather disgusting and most likely contagious.  ;)

Perhaps we are. I notice that unlike our lizardjew comrade I have had my posts deleted without notice.

 

No warnings, or moderation. Just deleted.

agreed, we highly recommend that wals should go unto the peoples with chronic diseases and lay-on hands. am suspecting that before he gets three confirmed miracles he will either contract something horrific himself, or he will get beaten to a pulp by peoples who don't much like the idea o' being fondled by a grubby englishman with pretensions o' glorification.  either way, we thinks that the experiment would be an entertaining learning experience.

 

HA! Good Fun!

"Those who won our independence by revolution were not cowards. They did not fear political change. They did not exalt order at the cost of liberty. To courageous, self-reliant men, with confidence in the power of free and fearless reasoning applied through the processes of popular government, no danger flowing from speech can be deemed clear and present, unless the incidence of the evil apprehended is so imminent that it may befall before there is opportunity for full discussion. If there be time to expose through discussion the falsehood and fallacies, to avert the evil by the processes of education, the remedy to be applied is more speech, not enforced silence."--Justice Louis Brandeis, Concurring, Whitney v. California, 274 U.S. 357 (1927)

Not much of a downside to be seen.

Well, the lack of warnings or moderation may have something to do with the fact that your inbox is full. :p

Dammit I hope you wouldn't notice Walsh! heh - but are you sure it's not just posts that go off topic, you do remember we prune threads without notifying each and every one who was posting off topic?

I was trying to come up with something witty to post, then realized I was not topping this one.
