    If I successfully predict 15 consecutive coin flips, what would be your estimate for P(the coin was a fair coin)?

    How did you get your hair to look that way? I like the Buffalo Bill feel.

    Jumping the shark, and you even ran out of wit along the way.

    SAD!

    Maybe if you would deign to publish your legendarily proprietary model, we could all pitch in and offer an objective test of it, in order to confirm your gold status over Silver.

    The outcomes are correlated. Again, that is the kind of oversight that severely discredits you.

    Even Nate "overrated" Silver knows that the strength of a model is measured by its prediction record and not by the "objective tests" of Salty Fawlty and the Peanut Gallery.

    It's true that I would like to see this thing you claim to have, but I don't think it's true that this thing you have is what you claim.

    So it was three coin flips, but you didn't realize it was three coin flips. I'm quite satisfied being in the 90th percentile, as I'm sure Jack is to be in the 91st.

    1947 was a long time ago. Let's put it behind us.

    Inb4 he shows us all what he's truly capable of and Sherdog collapses in on itself like a dying star from the weight of his ego

    Obviously the truth of it can be challenged but when we had a thread about level of education, a large group was beyond bachelors in the poll that was put up. I believe @JDragon has a PhD as well as some others I can't recall at the moment
