    People who're in CEO jobs or just any high flying job that pays **** loads of money... I don't get it... If it was as stressful as their salary suggests they'd be dead from the stress...
    The high salaries don't purely represent stress though, they represent the fact that not just anyone can do the job.

    If that person decided to quit and find another job (potentially paying a better salary), the company would either lose so much money or have such a difficult task in finding a replacement of the same calibre that it's worth paying them a high salary just to keep them.

    " All Muslims are terrorists" Like Really? You wouldn't be even alive rn. There are 1.6-1.8 billion muslims in the world.
    You know what's funny? ive never seen a single person in my life say that on the internet, let alone hear it be said in real life. I reckon this is just an extreme exaggeration perpetuated by people who want to believe it.

    Wow... Never thought you're the type to take the piss like this.

    Of course I don't believe you! How the absolute **** is the tooth fairy meant to fit a bicycle under your pillow?
    Sorry, it wasn't intended as rude or anything like that. I was just giving an example as a comparison. For us atheists the idea of there being a god is as unrealistic as that story I wrote. I was trying to answer your question with something we can both relate to.

    I wasn't really thinking about the logistics of the bicycle though, like how is the tooth fairy meant to keep you asleep while cramming the bike into your bed? I suppose magic pixie sleeping powder would work, maybe she put the back wheel under the pillow so at least some of it is under there? :dontknow:

    Sponsorship for charity.

    Why should my giving to a good cause depend on you running a marathon or skydiving or wearing stupid clothes for the day? What is the logical connection?

    How stupid people are able to survive for so many generations. By stupid, I mean people who actively do dangerous things without taking any precautions.

    Also, how some elderly people can afford to shop at Marks and Spencer every week. I go get some shopping at the shopping centre every week with my Granny but I don't usually buy anything at Marks. She and the various people she meet weekly, on the other hand, buy quite a lot there.

    Model just gives us a theoretical value of a European option by looking at the log normal returns. It's all based on the idea that stocks move stochastically with a drift (Geometric Brownian Motion).

    Just plug the values into the formula and boom you've got your value.

    It starts getting long when you partially differentiate the equation though lol.

    Damn I'm so sorry. I wasn't offended at all about what you said. I found it funny, which is why I gave it a rep lol. My reply was supposed to be funny and sarcastic- but it looks like I failed miserably.
