Over a dissent from Justice Sonia Sotomayor that was joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the Supreme Court last night declined to block the executions of three Ohio men. One of the inmates, Ronald Phillips, is scheduled to be put to death today for the 1993 rape and murder of his girlfriend’s daughter. Phillips and the other two inmates, Gary Otte and Raymond Tibbetts, had challenged the three-drug protocol that the state plans to use to carry out their executions, arguing that it violates the Eighth Amendment’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment.

For those that lasted two hundred days, two hundred more. The heuristic became known as the Lindy Effect. Let me warn the reader: while the Lindy effect is one of the most useful, robust, and universal heuristics I know
