@nntaleb Mr Lakens, please kindly show where my equations were “discovered” in that paper and explain the claim of “re-invented” p-value. @lakens Permalink 2:19 AM – 26 Mar 2016

@nntaleb Is it me or a Kafkaesque absurdity? Europe allows Saudi Barbaria to teach/promote Salafi hatred in cities while locally”fighting” terrorism. Permalink 3:59 PM – 25 Mar 2016

@nntaleb Heuristic: if you have a difficult equation to solve, ask a physicist or an engineer, never a real mathematician. @CutTheKnotMath Permalink 2:36 PM – 25 Mar 2016

@nntaleb Real world math NEEDS to be robust to assumptions. Our message in RWRI http://www.realworldrisk.com   @dsquareddigest @Tayeste88 Permalink 2:19 PM – 25 Mar 2016

@nntaleb “An ounce of algebra is worth a ton of verbal argument” is from Haldane, a biologist with brains. @Tayeste88 Permalink 2:14 PM – 25 Mar 2016

@nntaleb An ounce of algebra is worth a ton of verbal argument. Mathematics is not sufficient but necessary to remove the BS. @Tayeste88 Permalink 2:01 PM – 25 Mar 2016

@nntaleb No longer capable of reading “scientific” text w/discourse/graphs. Either math (w/comments), or humanities, nothing in between.#barbell Permalink 12:43 PM – 25 Mar 2016

@nntaleb OK, here is the metadistribution of “power of test” for specific p. @ceptional pic.twitter.com/lZMvyObXrT Permalink 8:52 AM – 25 Mar 2016

@nntaleb Ystrdy in front of St Patrick’s Cathedral in NY Salafi fellow blasted Salafi prayers. Blast Byzantine vespers in Riyadh & you’d be beheaded. Permalink 7:09 AM – 25 Mar 2016

@nntaleb FINAL Version: Dense paper on p-values without the verbose cluelessness of soc science http://fooledbyrandomness.com/pvalues.pdf   video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qrfSh07rT0   Permalink 5:57 AM – 25 Mar 2016

@KS1729 @nntaleb very nice. Two improbably elegant ones by Ramanujan. Thought you might appreciate. pic.twitter.com/sdKhBSva1u Permalink 3:48 PM – 24 Mar 2016

@nntaleb Actually for 0< p < 1/2 pi ! Even better Permalink 3:41 PM – 24 Mar 2016

@nntaleb Come on, appreciate the beauty ! @nils_petter87 Permalink 2:01 PM – 24 Mar 2016

@nntaleb 2) Spent the night trying the most possibly elegant mathematical expression for metadist of p-values. Exciting! pic.twitter.com/mfidYvNjCx Permalink 1:39 PM – 24 Mar 2016

@nntaleb A fun fun book to read for those who like an intellectual James Bond. http://www.amazon.com/Secret-Fatima-Peter-J-Tanous/dp/1504035119/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1458820088&sr=1-1&keywords=peter+tanous+fatima   https://twitter.com/PeterJTanous/status/710233158449496066   Permalink 4:48 AM – 24 Mar 2016
