My background is in math (BMath; Waterloo) and civil engineering (BASc, MASc; Toronto). As I learned to dislike statistics when I was studying math, fate provided me with the opportunity to do a master's thesis on applying good old-fashioned statistics to hydrology with the goal of finding improved methods of estimating underlying distributions from small samples. Fortunately, this relied heavily on Monte Carlo simulation and I was able to convince myself that it was based on software instead of statistics. I somehow ended up as a software developer working on real time control systems and ancillary applications for the broadcast industry for fifteen years and now work as a project manager for the development of call center software.

This seems like trivia rather than being a question that benefits the community in any way.

comment How many different endings does Sholay have?
As the censored alternate version is now available on YouTube, I think that the first and third endings you mention refer to the same version. youtube.com/watch?v=Oh_WeoKJkUY
