Repost to my Blog

A comment on my first entry begged yet another question: Why are most people so scared of change? The real question goes deeper than the originating thought, which was the age old question of contemporary language usages doing battle with modern interpretations and exactly how wide-spread must a "slang" usage be to become justified. I think in this case you'd be hard pressed these days to find people adhering to the antiquated definition, but I admire the fervor of those who try to keep...

So my brother has been seeing this woman. Well he's not seeing her anymore. But he's probably still in love with her, and she with him, but of course they drive each other crazy in a bad way too.

(Using n for intersection and u for union, since the built-in TeX is terrible with those symbols.)

Oddly enough, Rosenthal's probability book doesn't seem to even point this out, and my other probability book (Hogg/Craig, from several years back) doesn't see fit to prove it or make a big deal of it.
