From wikipedia:

Chaos theory is a field of study in mathematics, with applications in several disciplines including physics, engineering, economics, biology, and philosophy. Chaos theory studies the behavior of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions, an effect which is popularly referred to as the butterfly effect. Small differences in initial conditions (such as those due to rounding errors in numerical computation) yield widely diverging outcomes for chaotic systems, rendering long-term prediction impossible in general.[1] This happens even though these systems are deterministic, meaning that their future behavior is fully determined by their initial conditions, with no random elements involved.[2] In other words, the deterministic nature of these systems does not make them predictable.[3][4] This behavior is known as deterministic chaos, or simply chaos.

Chaotic behavior can be observed in many natural systems, such as weather.[5][6] Explanation of such behavior may be sought through analysis of a chaotic mathematical model, or through analytical techniques such as recurrence plots and Poincaré maps.

KJ, if I were dirty, which I'm not, I tell you how I could become a millionaire. I would take everyday multi-vitamins, rip the cover off, label them as "miracle weight loss pills" and I betcha I would sell millions of em. Whatcha think?

I just get really tired of all the hateful things people post on FB, regardless of which side they are on. Being hateful is not funny or cool, and when it's grown adults, it's even worse.

"Just because you post it or say it doesn't make it true."

This statement has set me free from all the fb political fodder being posted these days from blue or red folks.

I think it can work here on SP for all the shortcut to weightloss & quick fix diet plans people post.
