    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

      Mr Magoo. It was a miracle he never got in an accident.

      The nickname stuck in his office, too, when he went to a convention in an industrial park and when it was over, he couldn't remember where he parked his car.

      He spent hours searching for it, had security driving him around to find it, finally reported it stolen....only to get a call in the morning from security saying his car was just where he left it. This was in 1985, long before the Seinfeld episode....heh.

      He was Magoo until he retired. :)

        distance. I suspect the two may be connected and somehow related to the sense of touch. I also suspect that in a supportive environment, people almost automatically compensate for such deficits (like making sure a person who can't keep track of time is kept on time by someone else). In a non-supportive environment, the resulting midhaps may well result in general timidity or aggressive bluster to mask the deficits. Such a person may get along by being super demanding and obnoxious, railing on all and sundry for not taking care of business.
        That's how we get the incompetent manager, I think.

        We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
