I'm not quite sure why he would want try and do this. I'm sure its been suggested like a million times. Maybe even more than that. Maybe like a hundred hundred plus 99 times!

Dec-18-06  jackmandoo: <Archives> I dont find humor in you making fun of my inability to comprehend numbers. Dont ever do that again. If I find out that you have done it again, you'll only get two more chances. then after those two just one more after that. As you can see I'm not giving you any more chances to make fun of me anymore. Because you get that one chance, plus the two more that I give, and then the one which cancels out those other chances. So you basiclly have very little room to make fun of me.....Actually according to my calculations here I just did you just wound up in the negative with chances. What the hell did I just do wrong? I've got -.8 chances for you to make fun of my inability to comprehend numbers. If this turns out to be right you're in big trouble mister.

So I have a -.8 chance? I think you did your maths a little bit wrong.

The probability for getting the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is as high as 54% (only if you find the leprachaun).

However, if you voted democrat last election, then the probability increases by 1/3, and if you voted republican then the probability decreases by 2/3.

Behind one door is the pot of gold and behind the other one is nothing. But since the door you first chose is empty by a probability of 1/2, then the probability that the gold is behind the other door is the same, 1/2.

Therefore the chances for me to make fun of your inability to comprehend numbers is -0.8.

Hold on, your were right all along. My bad. Let's bounce homie

Dec-18-06  Archives: I knew Karlis. He was a crazy guy. He got hung up on the white queen, and he went mad.
