Self-Blogwhoring in the name of keeping this Blog Family Friendly

by Ken Houghton

There are very few religions in this world* worth devotion: sex, bicycling, and soccer are certainly three.

David Hirshey at deadspin sort of combined all three.

"in this world" is deliberate; eschewing Pascal's wager in a moment of carpe diem leaves one with a manageable time scale and therefore definable Utility functions. Assuming an afterlife, or even reincarnation, throws a serious spanner into PV calculations, as the amount of time in limbo/transit/stasis/etc. cannot be discounted appropriately.
