normative decision theory has some neat things like. it distinguishes (quite clearly) between decisions where you don't know anything about the relative probabilities of the outcomes, and assuming that the probabilities are evenly distributed

also there's the whole thing about scales of measurement

this is jargony what I mean is I like theories that can measure exactly how good a decision is, and can help you find the best decision based on some assumptions/values. however this goes against my preference for people not telling me what to do

normative theories of decision making are kinda cool, despite the fact that I generally dislike prescriptivism

Unicode 12 will include U+1FA73 🩳 SHORTS, and so I suggest a new ZWJ sequence: U+1F456 JEANS + U+200D ZERO WIDTH JOINER + U+1FA73 SHORTS, which should be rendered as JORTS (alias jean shorts)
