    Will it get any replies?

    Edward Lorenz author of the famous paper "Predictability: Does the Flap of a Butterfly's Wings in Brazil Set off a Tornado in Texas?" is dead at 90.

    Let the chaos ensue.

    Never heard of Lorenz or his paper, but RIP nonetheless.

    I can't claim to have a full grasp on chaos theory, but the guy did do a vital public service: He proved what your grandfather already knew, namely, that the guy on TV trying to predict the weather is utterly and completely full of shit.
