Good article, Sam. Thanks for writing. I think some of the "numbers" links you put in really illustrate your points. Sounds like the legislators in Wyoming need to grow up and get serious about how the world actually works. And your links about the Mega Millions and the undefeated Saturday quarterback illustrate our society's delusion with probabilities. Unlikely things happen all the time, but the odds of it happening to any one particular person are astronomical. But since one person won the lottery, or one player is undefeated on every Monday there is a full moon, why won't it me be next time?
