    I think the only racing I'll be doing is to MTDN. I hear both Muziek and ChickenNoodles escaped there

    All the ladies are over at mtdn, it's not nearly so male-dominated as here, or it doesn't seem it anyway. But that means we can talk about racing! I hope that Jenson Button starts realising his potential this year. Well he started looking good last year, I hope he continues where he left off.

    So some of you race guys pull for Montoya, while others push Button?

    Did you know that women can be pretty and clever at the same time? Scary combination, huh?

    Apart from the obvious examples from this thread, here's another one: Marilyn vos Savant. She was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as having the highest recorded score in an IQ test (228 when she was 10...). Among other things she has been working as a puzzle columnist for a U.S. magazine, and as such was involved in the story of one of my favourite puzzles, which goes like this:

    "Suppose you're on a game show and you're given the choice of three doors. Behind one is a car, behind each of the others is a goat. You pick a door, say door A, and the host, who knows what's behind the other doors, opens another door, say B, which has a goat. He then says : "Do you want to switch to door C?" Is it to your advantage to take the switch?"

    After having given the answer, vos Savant has recieved more than 10'000 letters about that puzzle, most of them claiming she had been wrong. Here two examples:

    "I'm very concerned with the general public's lack of mathematical skills. Please help by confessing your error. . . ." - Robert Sachs,Ph.D., George Mason University

    "You blew it, and you blew it big!. . . You seem to have difficulty grasping the basic principle at work here. . . There is enough mathematical illiteracy in this country, and we don't need the world's highest IQ propagating more. Shame!" -Scott Smith, Ph.D., University of Florida.


    Quite funny, because her anwer had been correct of course (when assuming that the game host always opens a door with a goat among the two remaining doors). Any ideas, is it better to switch, to keep the first door you picked, or does it not matter?

    Interesting that you mention this book. My wife found it great, too (I haven't read it yet). Two days ago, we had dinner with another couple who realised through this book that one of their two sons is affected by a mild form of Asperger's syndrome (like the protagonist of that book). For them it was quite shocking to discover so many common traits between their son and the boy in the book...

    There seems to be a really excellent audiobook version, too, btw., read by a boy.


    P.S.: You are right of course about changing the door in the puzzle. Two thirds chance to find the car vs. one third when sticking to the first door. Still, not easy to see why.

    It used to work with the off topic sections of Visorcentral and Treocentral, why not here?
    I'd say suggest it to Marcus, but I doubt it would happen... technically to complicated and not even discussing the fact that the 2 sites are kind of competitors..

    Hey I went to The Netherlands again on my last trip. Pretty country, pretty ladies, pretty expensive. Treo 600 in Schipol was 690 euros. I think the shop managers have been spending a little too much time in the red light district at the "Coffee Shops".

    No data or email available there....works in most of the other places, Iceland, UK, Denmark etc. but not in The Netherlands......

    Yea, and you'll get exactly the same amount that Bushie's plan will give you.....You should start planning you day around the soup kitchen to avoid the rush.

    I am pretty sure this is because most of The Netherlands is below sea level - you know, like below the radar... Similar to Holland, actually, in this respect.

    Don't worry most dutch people have trouble explaining the diff, so why would a person with a brain like swiss cheese know?
