Re: The "Monty Hall Problem" brain teaser - add yours

I agree that many of the explanations are bad, especially those that emphasize the opening of a door as an important event. What is important are the rules governing the opening of the door.

Re: Conspiracy theories over military exercise run amok in Texas

I agree. I grew up in San Diego and still have nightmares about the way an occupying force would arrive by aircraft carrier every six months. They even had F-16 fighters fly overhead at baseball...

Re: 2015 NBA Draft - June 25, 2015

I planned to create a detailed database, but broke down and ended up just using the wikipedia draft summary for each year to get raw counts since I'm lazy.

For the top 5 draft picks it's 66 out of...

Re: 2015 NBA Draft - June 25, 2015

I think Jalen Rose is overstating things by saying there's no such thing as a bust, but he's closer to reality than most fans. Based on the player making an All-Star game, only 97 of the 280 top ten...

Re: Supreme Court -- 2011 and beyond discussion

I think the 21 page opinion was just to justify taking the case at all since it probably wouldn't have looked good to take a case just to issue a half page decision saying "This is why the IRS and...

Re: ΣΑΕ

I didn't realize obscenity laws had been ruled unconstitutional. When did that happen?

Re: Official 2015 NFL Off-Season Thread

So a Chargers source is really going to argue that a team that voluntarily left LA shouldn't be allowed to return? I'm not sure this unnamed source knows much about the Chargers history.

Re: YA401KQT - Yet Another 401K Question Thread

Not necessarily. If you reach the max while contributing the minimum to receive the match, then you're correct, but if you're contributing more than required to receive the match, then changing the...

Re: YA401KQT - Yet Another 401K Question Thread

Do you get a company match? If so you should change your contribution for next year so you don't reach the limit before the end of the year.

Re: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

Just curious. You say it doesn't look unfamiliar, is that unfamiliar for soccer, or unfamiliar in sport in general?

Did they hire the former T'wolves GM? Maybe they can trade for Ricky Rubio.

Re: Horse Racing -- The Sport of Kings -- 2012 and beyond

Del Mar is listed as 44k, but the turf expansion cut into the infield, I'm not sure if that reduced capacity.

Re: Horse Racing -- The Sport of Kings -- 2012 and beyond

It's already been or is in the process of being replaced and the turf course has been extended to accommodate the BC. Del Mar is a great venue and well worth a trip if you've never been.

Re: Is it time for the US or UN to get involved in Iraq again?

Re: Horse Racing -- The Sport of Kings -- 2012 and beyond

Just to further drive the point home, between 1970 and 1979 there was never a horse that ran in the Kentucky Derby and went directly to the Belmont Stakes. Of the 87 horses that ran the Belmont...

Re: Horse Racing -- The Sport of Kings -- 2012 and beyond

Not in the numbers they do now. Look at the fields that ran in the years a horse actually won the triple crown compared to more recent years. Look at the composition of the fields they were running...

Re: Horse Racing -- The Sport of Kings -- 2012 and beyond

I don't think Coburn has a point, but the situation now isn't the same as it was in the past.

In the 70's the payouts weren't enough to make it worth shipping a decent horse across the country to...

Did you make realistic estimated payments throughout the year, or lowball the estimated payments and write a large check on April 15? The estimated payment penalty shouldn't kick in unless the...
