I guess according to some experts they are 50 to 1 because that's the ceiling for this kind of thing. That might also seem arbitrary but in reality it's also a bullseye because the Mayans had a base 5 number system so 50 is two hands of their one hand base. In other words, it's the maximum countable on a person's hands using their base. It's just logic to understand modern assessments of probabilities have to consider limits within the Mayans system. Bullseye!

Actually, if one uses two hands of a one-hand base, the maximum countable is 25, not 50 (because 5 [right hand counting the "ones"] x 5 [left hand counting the "fives"] = 25).

But each hand represents 100 in base-5. 50 base-10 is 200 in base-5. That's one 100 per hand. Two hands gives you the reason why the odds are capped at one in fifty to us. It seems arbitrary until you realize it's perfectly logical if one is thinking like a Mayan. So bullseye!

Did you ever figure out who Smokey is? He seems to have taken a keen interest in you, Dr. Shades.

No, I haven't bothered. But yeah, he's certainly obsessed with me, all right.

Dr. Shades submitted a great video of him singing "American Soldier." It was great.

FYI: Smokey is claiming responsibility for this site's recent troubles over on the NOM board. I don't know how this site's problems occurred or what they were other than it didn't work. So, I don't know whether or not to believe his claims. However, this is what he is saying over there.

Smokey is lying, of course. The site is having problems because the server did a PHP upgrade that wasn't backward-compatible with this board's software, nothing more.

I will definitely be considering Rebecca, but Brock has made it very hard to feature him on the show time and time again, and will not be making another appearance on the show.

The show takes a lot of brawn to host, and finding a candidate as powerful as Carson is unlikely.

It's hilarious already! Brett's COVID-19 mask is nearly the same color as the green screen behind him, so the background image is bleeding through the bottom half of his face. It's like he's wearing a lace bra over his face, or that the bottom half of his face is a ghost.

This is a total satire show. This bit about getting scammed and he can't get into his Google account and asking if someone works for Google tipped his hand.
