true. I studied pharmacy where there is 90% females and I bathed in pussy. Roasties now are in pharmacy store, developing varicose veins from 8h/day standing on their feet, while I learned some prigramming and math on the side during my pharmacy university studies and now I am chilling in american big pharma industrial R&D mathematical modeling job working with PhD's from MIT and getting paid more than sofware developers for applying philosophy and risk engineering ideas from based Nassim Taleb to developing vaccine trials and anticancer drugs. Plus I learned to apply Taleb ideas in my trading strategies on my brokerage account.

Now tell me /lit/, which one of your virgin theoretical philosophers helped you land a based job where you are saving lives by thousands, paid top dollar and be able to grow your wealth by trading based on same philosophies from the same philosopher?

surprised I do not see Taleb as recommendation fitting for this thread and board. Probability and randomness is very important in real life and I see even professionals making dire serious mistakes due to misunderstanding (including myself)

also "Street-Fighting Mathematics" by sanjoy mahajan (excellent free accompanying mooc on edX)

t. mathematical modeler employed in big pharma

taleb definitely does not write as yellow page pop science, he has gift of communicating complex ideas simply and clearly as he puts mathematicc heavy stuff in dedicated papers. He hates pseuds.
