According to this guy, you're using Bayes' Theorem or you're doing it all wrong.

Or I'm making fun of myself. That book looks really good, though.

It'll be either really good or really bad, depending on whether he applies Bayes' Theorem correctly.

If he used Bayes' Theorem in the odds form without acknowledging that I gave him the idea, I'm going to be pretty pissed.

I'd say if it's before around 10am. Of course, I'm not much of a morning person. Cool

Oh man Bayes' Theorem, too complicated for me, and yes I am a History major, also doubling including English. Hopefully becoming a high school teacher eventually and no I probably wont be making enough to buy a GriGri.Frown

I started leading last year and I am really learning quickly. First, I think the incentive to hold on is so much greater that your following abilities improve greatly as well. I have felt like I have been in a blind leading the blind group (including myself) but I am always up for some good advice. This forum is good advice! Humble pie is delish!
