unskewedpolls.com says there's a 70% chance that nate silver gets drunk and masturbates into an empty coffee cup behind a dumpster.

Will masturbate to pictures of Mariah Carey and cry afterward into his warm Bud Light.

Unless he's going to a results watching orgy then he's not getting laid until after midnight.

Now, let's make sure I have enough rubbers and viagra. I'm going to a results watching orgy tonight!

unrelated...

Has anyone else noticed the huge increase of right-wing rage at Nate Silver these last couple days? Just today I saw an article calling him a "magician," and an article saying he runs a "numbers racket," and some other ridiculously stupid article that was so absurd I can't even remember what their main gripe was.

Sorry, righties. Math is real no matter how bad you want to believe otherwise.

You really have no idea how he comes up with his numbers do you? It is a little bit more complicated than 2+2=4.

Please educate yourself.

Could this be what he was trying to tell me in his secret poetic twitter account?

Of course it is. Historical accuracy is factor (among others) that needs to come into play. He has been highly accurate for his entire history (such that it is). He seems, so far, to be able to account for changes in polling frequency, accuracy, averages, and other factors. unskewed polls has no history whatsoever and had DRASTICALLY changed their projections in just the past 10 days. Not saying that you are/were advocating unskewedpolls.com or anything, but Silver has a track record, short though it might be. His model would be wrong pretty much ONLY if people like the guy that runs unskewedpolls are right. That seems dubious.

I'm sure a sweet Jewish boy like Nate has no trouble getting laid whenever he wants to.

/grindr, just saying...

If Obama wins with 313, he will get laid EVERY night.
 
2012-11-06 07:49:20 PM  
Well, I guess Nate Silver is wrong on one thing.

/Honestly, I don't want to see what Silver says about the life expectancy of a chronically single loser like me.
//I'm probably beating the odds as it is.

Holfax: If Obama wins with 313, he will get laid EVERY night.


Actually, that's just the statistical average, and not a very likely number in itself. The most likely numbers are 303 or 332, depending on how Florida votes.

Conaidering he's on TCR tonight, he can probably score a Colbert groupie.
 
2012-11-06 08:46:39 PM  
99% chance subby not getting laid tonight.
 
2012-11-06 11:01:47 PM  
I'm betting he's going to be too tired to get busy tonight, but were I he, I'd have the next two weeks blocked out for sex and sun somewhere warm.

Romney and Ryan, apparently.
