I always get the two confused because they both charge around $10 for a beer and have a lot of losers taking center stage. All I know for sure is you gave me a phoney number before taking off in that AFLAC limo.

    Couldn't resist - I came across this "brain teaser" in an excellent book about statistics by Hans-Peter Beck-Bornholdt and Hans-Hermann Dubben. It shows a situation we all get in sooner or later: interpreting the result of a medical test - what does the result really mean (prenatal diagnosis etc.)?

    In the example, it goes like this:

    Imagine you were on summer holidays on the beautiful island of Teeceeralia. After returning home, you learn that 1 person in 1000 visitors of Teeceeralia is infected with a strange disease leading to "Dancing Chicken Syndrome", DCS for short. The good news is, there is a cure (though painful), and a way to test whether you are infected.

    The test detects DCS with 99 % certainty, meaning of 100 people infected with DCS, 99 are detected by the test and only one is missed (1 % false negative results).

    Conversely, among 100 healthy people, 2 people are wrongly diagnosed with DCS (2 % false positive results).

    You take the test and your test result is positive, meaning the test says you are infected. Should you worry, and if, how much? What is that chance that you are in fact infected?

    The answer is one of the following:

    - 99 %
    - 98 %
    - 50.5 %
    - 33.3 %
    - 4.72 %
    - 1 %
    - 0.1 %

    Good luck - looking forward to your answers!

    Speaking about European liberalness and joie de vivre: The British Prime Minister was approached and enthusiastically kissed yesterday by Jean Peterson, obviously a great fan.



    She said she didn't know why she did it, it was "just a nice gesture". From her we also learn that Tony Blair has "lips as soft as a babie's".

    a while ago a man kissed queen Beatrix (of the Netherlands) during the queensday celebration. Normally people just shake her hand. It took everybody by surprize, but she was really cool about it.

    Wonder what would happen if somebody tried to kiss Bush..

    Regarding 4.7 % as the answer to the "Dancing Chicken Syndrome" puzzle: That sounds good. But it IS surprisingly low, isn't it? Let's see if anybody comes up with the solution of how to get to the result... you know, to leave a chance to our overseas friends who are still asleep.

    By the way, watch your thumbs: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/4222365.stm
    Lucky I use a Treo and not a Blackberry!

    Besides, it is difficult to understand why they focus on Blackberries. Also the kids sending millions SMSs on "normal" phones (a European disease) use their thumbs, and they get the same problems.

    Assuming anybody would want to, of course...

    Seriously though, there are strange people. Yesterday I saw a report on Michael Jackson fans waiting in front of the court in order to support him. One lady had flown all the way from Ireland for the occasion and said:

    "Michael Jackson is my life. Everything I am, I am through him, thanks to him." Why would anybody choose Michael Jackson as the idol and role model for life? Beats me...

    Chick-Dance, you are not going to believe this. The T650 picture you've sent (prize for your last puzzle of the week) got lost in the mail AGAIN! No sign of it! Would you believe it? I am starting to get seriously worried about the reliability of your mail system. Well, let's see, maybe if I wait some more...

    Of course I never heard of such horrifying disease before, it must be very painful to have DCS.
    Here's one way to look at it, clulup (and my prize you can give to Chick if you'd like):
    In a group of 100,000 visitors, on the average 100 will be infected
    and 99,900 will not. 99 of the infected visitors will test positive
    (99% of 100), and 1998 of the health visitors will test positive (2%
    of 99,900). So, on the average, in a group of 100,000 visitors, 99 +
    1998 = 2097 visitors will test positive, and of these 2097, 99 will be
    infected. So the chance you're infected, given that you tested
    positive, is 99/2097 = 4.72 %.

    You are absolutely right of course. I will send Ms. Chicken the prize as soon as her prize arrives! And jpahl (who got the answer first, after all) can get a nice Cappucino in Zurich once he is finished kissing girls three times in Geneva and manages to visit Zurich, too.

    Oh, now I see the problem... you have mixed up the mail and sent the prize to the bank and the $9 billion to me - at least now I know where that check came from. Well, I don't want the 9 billion, I want the prize!

    Monkeys pay for sexy pics?!

    Macaque monkeys are willing to give away fruit juice in exchange for the possibility to see a picture of the rear end of the female of the species, accoding to this paper published in the leading scientific journal "Nature". Isn't that low and primitive of them?? How can they!

    Ok, one has to add that the Macaques can see how interested in certain activities the females are from looking at those parts, so it does make sense for them. I have heard that some human males sometimes also tend to look at the back side of the respective females of the species, however, the gain of information seems to be much lower in this case... Anyway, interesting article.
