I’ve been working my way through Taleb’s Incerto series and am currently nearing the end of Antifragile. Just Skin in the Game left after that (I’ve skipped Bed of Procrustes as it’s a book of aphorisms). I would have been done sooner but I took a break after reading the first two books back to … Continue reading Hidden Options and Fragilities in Daygame
Somehow we’ve ended up here: with a post on questions. No, not a Q&A, but a literal technical post on asking questions in Daygame. This began as one of my (T)s for a lay report analysis post and I realised I had so much to say that it could be a post in its own … Continue reading Questions

One of the questions many Daygamers asks themselves is ‘how many sets should I do?’ ‘How many sets is enough?’ ‘How many sets constitutes a hard day’s work?’ In other words (with regards to the last one): ‘how many sets … Continue reading Fueled by Randomness
The Time of Day: it turns out the pussy paradise isn’t a place, it’s a time… man. Jokes aside it’s worth thinking about. I think 11am to 1pm has a higher ROI for me than, say, 2pm to 4pm. Someone more extroverted than me would say that 11pm to 1am has a higher ROI because … Continue reading #64: Long Live the Car Crash Hearts (Analysis)
