Hoopy Frood: Which parlor at the funeral home? Is he behind door #1, door #2 or door #3?


He should be buried under 3 headstones, leaving us to wonder forever which exit he took.

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.


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?

Well, why the fark not.

It's an illusion, a pattern that you are forcing unrelated events and coincidences.

It's not an illusion lol They're literally dead. As door nails. And it is grouped together in a manner to force you to recognize that generations rise up together and fall together.

The likelihood of men in their 90 dying in the same year is quite high.

That generation has long passed, what you are seeing knpwcis the embers glowing brightly before they are extinguished.

My eyes rolled back so hard they stuck.


No wonder you see patterns that aren't there, you need to see a doctor ;-)

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.

IIRC, Monty made a few appearances on the current Let's Make A Deal in the past few years. So he was over 90 still dealing away.
