The Mathematics of Vampirism and Lois

The Transylvanian Problem is what happens when Operations Research people have both an obsession with vampires and too much time on their hands.

In short, it's my favorite economics paper of the day, but I still think it's appropriate on this blog.

Quoting from Herself, Part 1

First in a series of selections from Herself:

from 18 December 2004, an observation on the overzealousness of certain industries in ensuring that the barn door is impenetrable as soon as all of the animals have departed.

Am stoking up on zinc and echinacea, plus some new fizzy thing, hoping to avert.

I was Displeased yesterday at the drugstore, where the shelves looked like the barbarians had been raiding them, quite empty, but no, it is the Decree of the Government, to take anything with pseudoephedrine off the shelves. If this goes on, there won't be any over-the-counter meds left on the shelves. I couldn't find the Actifed, which afaik does not have the pseudo-stuff.

I had been considering going out to feed the car and do a bit of shopping, but I haven't done it.

It was Greg's idea

A blog to discuss the works and workings of Lois Tilton, Nebula-nominated writer and curmudgeon, as suggested by Ballast for My Gorge and 100 Percent, Doc.
