    This may be one of my favourite repeated "bits" on this site. Welcome mirandasd. Hearty salutation from me, too.

    Favorite Yokozuna? Past And Present

    That's hard to tell--underneath the fat, how much muscle is on someone like Aoiyama? You can see the huge traps on a lot of the bigger guys, for instance.

    Coronavirus in China

    Last time I was in a hurry to get a new passport they got me one in two days in Australia. I'm sure things are running badly at the moment, but phone consular services and they tend to be pretty good when the urgency gets to them.

    Do you not understand that it's easier to keep things under control the smaller the number is? Do you not also notice that the SK effective response means that they get to go to nightclubs while you don't?

    GTB Natsu 2020- 106 entries and results!

    That might be my worst placing in like two years. Ouch. Many, many XW <-> X+1 E errors, in addition to bigger ones. Got most of the big moves wrong enough to disrupt large chunks of the banzuke, etc.

    Welp, if this isn't the worst I've done in a long time either I got lucky or this was hard. I feel like my internal algorithms don't cope well with the particular weirdness of this banzuke, but we shall see. Or not.

    One proxy for how widespread testing is is the positive rate--places that are testing extensively will have a much lower positive rate than places that aren't.

    Basho attendance

    Unfortunately, the japanese don't appear to post what americans would call 'ratings' anywhere, only 'share'. Not at all clear why.

    Basho attendance

    The people who are home now and the people who are home usually to watch sumo are not the same people. Also, I would guess that the absolute ratings are up (which wasn't in the data shown), even if the share and rank are both down.

    Videos Haru 2020 - Days 1-15

    Your vids are much easier to watch and more informative than your replacement, so long may your un-retirement last. Thanks!

    Guess Hokutofuji's Aite March 2020

    We agreed to let him run for one basho outside the joi when we started following him, I believe. (Yes, scores will be lower, but I bet sakura will still win..)

    I agree. I would happily decline promotion on those grounds. Thank you for the promotion. Feel free to keep it until I am more worthy.

    Haru 2020 Basho Discussion (SPOILERS)

    I mean, Enho's match a few days ago was exactly the case being discussed--Enho "lost his form" and so there was a torinaoshi. By no means did the two touch simultanously.
