Great minds think alike, and if you ask each of them, they will certainly confirm that they are great minds. No p-values needed. And Nassim still clings to his belief that statistics is another word for Gaussian and that things like extreme value theory just don’t exist, and certainly would have nothing to do with statistics.

I agree with him that a p-value should be taught in a different way to avoid misconceptions. It's a random variable and its empirical distributions should be analysed in hypothesis testing. (I prefer using confidence intervals anway.)

One of the many wonderful things about BJ is his sense of humour...and most importantly that most people of Britain are in on it. 

May - No sense of humour, no sense of anything really
Cameron - Sense of humour, but only shared with posho buddies, the rest of us weren't included
Brown - Scottish
Blair - Too shallow, too scripted
Major - Yes, a bit
Thatcher - I'll think I'll stop here!

Sense of humor is not the ability I would *first*  think of when it comes to running a country!

God, no! Second, definitely second place! This is England we are talking about, not Australia!

How come no?  Every election I think: "What bunch of clowns will be in charge now?"
