AurizenDarkstar: Never knew about the probability problem named after him.  But I do remember many 'Monty Haul' dungeons I ran through in the past days of D&D. :)


It's quite the interesting thing to watch unfold when you are aware of the probability. Makes each contestant unique...just like the people who spin the wheel on PIR so hard it goes around 20 times and lands on the green 5 when they wanted the dollar.

real_headhoncho: I don't think this is going to be bigger than the Hef tribute...


Behind one of these doors is Monty Hall's corpse. Behind the other two, Hugh Hefner's penis.

I always understand a finesse spin, and I understand the out of control spin on your first spin, but going apeshiat when you need a certain number?

I always look at it as insight to their overall personality and approach to life. But what baffles the absolute fark out of me is when they're playing the Attic game on PIR and they put the cat food in the mailbox when there's a juice pouch and an ointment and some ridiculously over-priced nut. Put the juice in the mailbox....so forth and so on then add the cat food to the mid-level with the nuts on top.

And that hot-seat game? What a joke. Whomever is controlling it already knows the winners and losers oh and the game with the meter? It's ALWAYS the middle. Always. The two worst games to get on PIR are the car game with the dollars and yodely man. And Rat Race is really hit or miss.

But, LMAD? The joker's wild so to speak and any indecision could be a deal breaker.

I disagree!

Cliffhangers (Yodely Guy game) is one of the easiest.

$20-$30-$40. That's all you need to tell them for the small prizes. It's very rare the small prizes are very far off of that formula. It'll win the game every time.

The car game with the dollars? Well, that's a bit tougher. But out of the nine slots, the top center is always the current season of the show and rarely has a car piece hidden behind it. So you're down to eight choices. The first numbers are always kind of simple, in the 18-22ish range, so pick accordingly. Worst case scenario, you blow two chances, and still have two chances left out of five pairs of numbers to pick the correct back half numbers.

Oh, no, I wasn't talking about Spelling Bee, either. I was talking about the other one where you pick two numbers for the front half of the car and two numbers for the back half.

In the documentary with Monty Hall, he said that some people actually wanted the animals that were offered as zonks. They were rented animals. Every month a check would be cut until the animal died.

Which is why on the new LMAD zonks are for show and no live animals are used (cause PETA farking sucks).

Jill Came Down With Two-Fifty: Howling Fantods: HairBolus: Monty Hall the person will soon be forgotten by history (unless someone can monetize rebroadcasts of the game shows). However his name will live on with the Monty_Hall_problem.

[img.fark.net image 251x139]

. . . Paul Erdős, one of the most prolific mathematicians in history, remained unconvinced until he was shown a computer simulation demonstrating the predicted result (Vazsonyi 1999).

The problem is a paradox of the veridical type, because the correct result (you should switch doors) is so counterintuitive it can seem absurd, but is nevertheless demonstrably true. The Monty Hall problem is mathematically closely related to the earlier Three Prisoners problem and to the much older Bertrand's box paradox.

This. I came here to thank Monty Hall for helping me understand statistics and prior probabilities.

Yep. The Monty Hall problem is a wonderful illustration of why common sense and intuition take a giant dump when it comes to probability.


It's easy if you picture it this way:  if you're always going to switch doors the first choice isn't really your choice at all. Your initial choice is actually the two other choices and because one bad is then revealed you can skip that bad choice in those other two, hence 2:3 odds. Now if you always keep your first choice the reveal doesn't help you or matter and you're stuck with 1:3 odds always.

Suppose you're on a game show, and you're given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats. You pick a door, say No. 1, and the host, who knows what's behind the doors, opens another door, say No. 3, which has a goat. He then says to you, "Do you want to pick door No. 2?" Is it to your advantage to switch your choice?
