I am glad to hear you say so. I knew that was what you thought, anyway. If I were in school right now, the teacher would be saying to me, “Write on the board 100 times, ‘I will not try to tease strangers. I will not try to tease strangers. I will not try to tease strangers.’ ”
While I’m here, I might as well confess I can’t truly understand your post, no matter how many times I read it, and that’s not your problem but mine. Is there any quick way to grasp the basics of statistics? Or even not-so-quick? My education in math was entirely of the “pure”-math sort.
