1. ## Milk your Ni for me

My dual-seeking function needs some stimulation. Post random stuff to feed it- I'll love you forever and ever! I'll feed your if you guys want to too!

I'm trying to finish a final exam here.

A simple example of a relationship in econometrics from the field of labor economics is

ln(wage) = β0 + β1(Years of education) + ε.
Economic theory says that the natural logarithm of a person's wage is a linear function of the number of years of education that person has acquired. The parameter β1 measures the increase in the natural log of the wage attributable to one more year of education. It should be noted that by using the natural log we have moved away from a simple linear regression model and are now using a non linear model, in this case, a semi-log y model. The term ε is a random variable representing all other factors that may have direct influence on wage. The econometric goal is to estimate the parameters, β0 and β1 under specific assumptions about the random variable ε. For example, if ε and Years of Education are uncorrelated, then the equation can be estimated with ordinary least squares.

If the researcher could randomly assign people to different levels of education, the data set thus generated would allow the econometrician to estimate the effect of changes in years of education on wages. In reality, those experiments cannot be conducted. Instead, the econometrician observes the years of education of and the wages paid to people who differ along many dimensions. Given this kind of data, the estimated coefficient on Years of Education in the equation above reflects both the effect of education on wages and the effect of other variables on wages, if those other variables were correlated with education. For example, people with more innate ability may have higher wages and higher levels of education. Unless the econometrician controls for innate ability in the above equation, the effect of innate ability on wages may be falsely attributed to the effect of education on wages.

The most obvious way to control for innate ability is to include a measure of ability in the equation above. Exclusion of innate ability, together with the assumption that ε is uncorrelated with education produces a misspecified model. A second technique for dealing with omitted variables is instrumental variables estimation.
that's cool

haha how does one rape someone with their over posts and forums and the like? hmmm... story perhaps? i had a bad day last week and went shopping and spent 400 bucks on dresses, boots, and jewelery and bags. It was even more because it was snowing/sleeting outside and I was on Newbury street (which are a bunch of outdoor shops obvi) rather than in a mall or something. I also hadn't slept in 2 days but I HAD to go shopping cuz i was in a bad mood. I slipped and fell all over the street i think between 4 and 5 times. But I HAD to do it!

Here's some more things when it comes to fashion that I like/want:

feel free to send me any of the above

5. I don't get enough love from you to send you the above.

can't say i blame u.

8. Come on, now, this is all boring as hell, and you know it.

Since when are Ni and Se about economics and shopping?

And we can't "milk" our Ni ourselves; that's what Se does.

But frankly, my dear, I think you are too old for me.

9. Wait a minute : 2+2 = 4 ? That's pretty retarded. In an other system 2+2 would equal 5. This is not logical, but this is true. I can't explain that. I really feel that 2+2=5 today. And tomorrow it would equal 78.

You're a stupid retarded weak girl, so I want you to give me your stupid so I'll feel more happy. I like to suffer but I don't know why. Women are weak, but I like to feel weaker than them.

I love you, and to prove that I'll make you suffer. You need to suffer. That's the key for the door of happiness. You won't feel happy, but you will actually be happy.

[spoil:911a347f82]I think that was [/spoil:911a347f82]

10. ...I really don't know what the fuck that was.

11. imf i think the model with dummy variables for level of studies completed and age on the x-axis is superior

haha i no, im bored at work and i feel under-stimulated. you can milk your Ni yourselves... u do use it for urself don't you? why do u think i'm too old?

that was unnecessary.

14. I'm going to be done with school in approximately 7.5 hours, two weeks from now I'm going to visit my girlfriend for 10 days, then I start school a week later.

15. the hell does that have to do with milking benwah balls???

16. that's not really variable

wow, wtf. you'd get your ass beat if you said something like that to a girl and I was there.

18. yeah, she'd stick her heel in his eye and then you'd laugh

19. After she pulls the heel out of his eye socket, she should be sure to swiftly drive it into his left testicle in order to further maximize the pain factor.

20. i am offended by your epithelial eccentricity. go to hell.

21. The power of population is so superior to the power of the earth to produce subsistence for man, that premature death must in some shape or other visit the human race. The vices of mankind are active and able ministers of depopulation.
I was reading an article in last week's newsweek magazine about genome patters, and it notioned that cancer, and other incurable diseases, are simply nature's way of restoring balance, that humans have been programmed to gradually die out.

22. FWIW i like the bag and both pairs of boots....i have a bag kinda like that 'cept it has an animal print lining and it's a liz....and boots kinda like both 'cept the scrunchy ones are taller on the leg but i know whatcha mean about retail therapy....LOL...ya think this is Se or EP???

23. The Time We Became Real

Last night a spiral cloud gulped down the town,
sending black rain to replace our lives.
Light from wet pavement flickers in eyes
resembling multi-colored marbles.
Must be the street lamp passing on into sleep.
Rapid Eye Movement, ghetto-style.

Shut the television off.
I want to see again.
Remember when we played
on the property line?
Baby snakes sneaked through cracks,
between foundational rocks.
But this was not the end of an era.

Playtime ended with our imaginary dad.
I stood staring at his upper thigh,
my arm heavy with a rock
laced like fabric of queen ant

It's time to grieve the loss
of playing with reptiles,
hierarchical insects.
Walls inside us grew tall,
shutting down factories,
our waterproof, airtight lids
like lashes spellbound by
pink eyes, sleep, and sun.
waiting for salt to show them
But salt no longer cleansed
or constituted tears.

Concentrate on the urgent messages
running across the bottom of your screen.
Beep, beep, beep, followed by jazz licks.
This is the way it should be
(Live from New York).
I am the present that teaches you how to
touch, feed, and rock
but not feel
(It's Saturday night).

Stay in character,
careful to not depart
Who was the man who said,
I've passed the initial death of memory,
the one that concurred with tiny bugs
falling like hail to rocks that would not give.
Perhaps it's time we became real --
you a symbol of truth,
me a talking doll.

i don't know Malthus's type but Wiener and Schopenhauer are probably INTp
I've always liked Norbert Wiener very much. ILI seems quite plausible for him. Schopenahuer, on the other hand, seems a little more INFp to me.

= Lizard?

haha i mean i guess maybe the particular "trendyness" and ridiculous prices are , but our similar tests can be attributed to EP i guess. it would be interested to give us both the same accessories and see how we dress ourselves differently with them.

27. ## (Got Se)

Ahh, so your dual seeking function needs stimulation? I think I know that feeling.

28. I'm beginning to wonder if I really am ILI . . . again. How many times am I going to have to re-check it? I always end up ILI anyway.

Tomatoes have menacing smiles. Bananas make excellent combat boomerangs. I feel stupid writing this crap, screw it.

snap take a look at these carlos santanas.....

and the matching bag....

30. I refuse to comply with the thread topic. Most likely because I lack in Ni and am using Ne or something, hah. No, actually I changed my mind. I predict that liveandletlive will soon run out of steam and start posting considerably less. Eventually disappearing almost completely (only some random posts every now and then). Then I predict that the end of the world is closer than ever before.

In addition I want to share that I have become very close with an INTp at work. He is just awesome. I don't know what that means type wise as I am not likely to be ESFp or anything.

both of these are probably good predictions.

"warm and fuzzy" is not exactly how i would describe it.

37. So...many...grammatical...errors.

Can't...take...it...for...too...long...ARGH!!!

Must...resist...must...NO!!!

*Explodes*

38. Okay, if you're going to mention clothing, now you have to help me.
Do these shoes: http://www.zappos.com/n/p/dp/18032878/c/54664.html
Match this dress: http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/...ze1=&color=nav

I hate trying to find shoes to match that are awesome, comfortable, and match more than one item in my closet all at the same time. It makes me want to throw something.
