У меня одного здесь бугурт от математики? Прочитал статью http://xahlee.info/math/abuse_of_math_notation.html и полностью с ней согласен.
also shoutout to youtube for age restricting like half the videos i made before i turned 18

re: pandemic, terrifying and maybe interesting comment
@cwebber The usual argument for Not Doing This No Really Seriously is that live viruses (or bacteria) released into the general environment have a boringly predictable habit of spreading and Continuing To Evolve, often in hard-to-predict ways.
It's a bit like the rationale against use of weapons of mass destruction such as fire or chemicals: once they're done going in the direction you pointed them in (if they in fact go there at all), they've got a nasty habit of coming back 'round to you or your'n which even remarkably unenlightened minds have come to respect.
Which is one of the reasons epidemiological response tends toward minimising vectors of transmission (if possible) and/or use of vaccines based on killed or attenuated virus or particles. The mRNA stuff is novel in that RNA (but not virus particles), encapsulated in lipid nanoparticles (I had to look that up, thought it might actually be a carrier virus or bacterium) uses the body's own mechanisms to generate antigens which are then recognised as foreign and train the immune system.
So ... yeah, a fast-spreading-but-harmless virus ... might ... seem attractive, but carries some pretty large risks. Even if it doesn't mess with humans, it could affect other species. Most of which are already doing poorly.
