    Re: Marvel Cinematic Universe

    There's a drive-in near us that's showing it as the second movie in a double feature. We thought about going, but decided against it when we figured the oldest two kids, 10 and 8, would still be...

    Re: Stars - what they really mean!

    OK, not to beat a dead horse but... This article kind of highlights my point about being both precise and being believable: When Negotiating Price, Never Bid With a Round Number

    Re: Canceled Tesla Order

    Honda on a budget? The domestics are typically cheaper within a given segment. And it gets worse on the used market. Certainly very solid vehicles, but not what I think of when I think "budget."

    Canceled Tesla Order

    So apparently some random guy who had ordered a Tesla (but not received it yet) called out Elon Musk on Twitter about a "poorly orchestrated launch event" for the Model X. So Musk personally canceled...

    Re: Stars - what they really mean!

    I don't disagree with anything you've said. And I probably read too much into your original post. You're absolutely right that it's just football recruiting and at the end of the day we just want the...

    Re: GuessTheCorrelation.com

    Not only am I an engineer, but I'm an engineer with a strong statistics background (SixSigma, reliability engineering). So yeah, I do weird things for fun.

    Re: Stars - what they really mean!

    Rhoadhoused, I don't mean to call you out specifically. I just see people everywhere that assume that because there is a number, it's legit and scientific and proven. Especially in the case of...

    Re: Stars - what they really mean!

    From the 247 website:

    [/I][/I][/I][/I]

    So it's taking that range for 5.3 to 6.1 (or 0 to 5 stars, or whatever else) and transforming it to a 0 - 1.0000 range and then averaging all of those...

    GuessTheCorrelation.com

    A fun little game where you are given a scatter plot (without a regression line) and have to guess the linear correlation coefficient. If you're too far off, you lose a life. If you are close, you...

    Re: Stars - what they really mean!

    But their numbers are based on aggregating those "arbitrary, ridiculous" values. And they assume that everything is linear - a 4 star guy is 2X better than a 2 star guy. Is that true? Does a 4 star...

    Re: Stars - what they really mean!

    Arbitrary Ranking & Scoring Evaluation (ARSE) A: Completely meaningless!

    ARSE B: Totally the right way to do it!

    How about we stop worrying about showing everyone that our ARSE is better than...

    Re: 2018 Recruit - Darren Davis, Jr.

    Just watched that highlight tape, and WOW he is good between the tackles. Great vision and shifty enough that no single guy can lay a solid hit on him.

    Sad to hear that plasmas are going away. I have a 60" Samsung plasma and love it. I had heard a couple years ago though that only Samsung and Panasonic were making them anymore. Something to do with...

    I've only ever been there once (the one in Tulsa), and it was long enough ago that I don't really remember it.

    Re: Andy Fales with tasty breaking news

    Jack In The Box is good, but it's not significantly different from Hardee's/Carl's Jr except for menu size. I mean the jalapeno poppers are tasty, but they're not any better than what you find in the...

    Jeopardy! Online Test

    Anybody else take it over the past couple days? I just finished it. I have no idea how well I did - they get manually scored for partial and/or misspelled answers. I'm guessing somewhere between 25 -...

    Regular ethyl alcohol, the stuff you drink, is poisonous too. It's just a matter of exposure. Let's not pretend that "normal" alcohol doesn't result in thousands of deaths and chronic diseases each...
