Actually a discussion on the usual concept of risk would not be bad. The Saint Petersburg paradox and all that stuff. - π 04:52, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

That would be somewhat off-mission, though. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 04:54, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
How about if I tie it in with risk manipulation by banks, the sort of thing that contributed to the financial collapse? - π 04:56, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
That is acceptable. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 05:03, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
There are also a decent number of fallacies involving risk, I believe. It helps to influence bad behavior by groups. Researcher 05:12, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

'Twas a red link, I Ed Poured on it. No need to delete, I think we might be able to say some smart things. Meantime, it is indeed a world domination board game. Surely that is on-mission? ħumanUser talk:Human 05:50, 30 October 2009 (UTC)
