Probability of 4.0. That might be sig-worthy in a world without Dorothy Parker in it.
I don't know, but I get the impression that even I, non-mathematical me, are able to understand who's right and who's not in the Good Math, Bad Math thread. If that is right, the Bad Mathers must be awfully bad. Let me guess: It is because they are after a particular answer that they somehow 'know' has got to be there, or else? And that runs all the way back from the sycopanths to WMAD himself.
Just my opininon, too late for me to learn math now. I might as well keep my big mouth shut but sometimes one gets fed up with the attempts at creating irrational models of the world.
The first principle is that you must not fool yourself — and you are the easiest person to fool.
