we need fake data

Today was Jan Rybizki's last day in NYC. We did indeed find that our calibration offset differences were attributable to different amplitudes of AGB and SNe. That resolution led us to realize that Rybizki should be making fake data from his self-consistent model for me to model with my too-flexible model: Do I get biased answers and can I infer yields? In particular, we can make fake data with one set of yield tables and I can seed with (and put in priors based on) another set of tables. That's on the to-do list. We spent time talking about the future, in which we model the Milky Way with a hierarchical mixture of self-consistent models, permitting adjustments to the data calibration and yield tables.
