How interesting! Dr. Doolittle would be so proud!

California street gangs stage fights whose locations can be accurately predicted using the same algorithm that anthropologists use to predict where lions and hyenas will fight in the wild to protect their own territories. A UCLA researcher, using the standard "Lotka-Volterra" equation on 13 equal-sized criminal gangs in the Boyle Heights neighborhood in east Los Angeles, produced a table of probabilities showing how far from each gang's border any fights were likely to occur. In the period 1999 to 2002, the formula correctly showed that about 58 percent of shootings occurred within 0.2 miles of the border, 83 percent within 0.4 miles, and 97 percent within 1 mile.[Daily Mail (London), 3-26-2013]

accurately predicted = 83 percent within 0.4 miles, and 97 percent within 1 mile.

While your point is well taken, the psychological profile of he/she/it would tend to indicate otherwise.

Ignorance, like pretending investing wins arguments on any topic. If that were the case, your attacks on the Koch brothers would certainly be incorrect. But hey, your arguments, or lack thereof, work one way for you, and a different way for everyone else. Now go yip some more at the big dogs from behind your fence.

A psychological profile of this individual could provide a doctoral thesis for many aspiring psychologists.
