He had nothing to lose. He was only registered as a guest. It's a shame in a way because I enjoy posts like those. But from a guest it doesn't really mean too much. GET REGISTERED and then make some predictions and we'll talk about putting your rep on the line.

This cat won't lose any sleep.

That's the Wizzard clause, right Weasie? Where is the Wizzard anyway? Probably preparing to hand over thenumerous ff titles he has amassed over the years with his prognastication skills. For womeone to go oh-for-three after a 99% ave. over the years is extrodinary. Kind of like anyone deciding to listen to a self-flaggellating poser. Thanks for coming out, Wiz.

The wizard won't be back

Don't hold your breath on a reply. "The Wizard" is just another bait, meaning he is probably the owner of a pay-for-predictions web site that goes onto a bunch of fantasy chat sites and makes long shot picks. Then, when he hits on one, he offers the readers of that chat room a 'password' to get into his site, which of course will charge money for his 'great' picks. He then just ignores all the other sites where his long shots didn't pay off. It's a pretty standard scheme, you guys should have recognized it earlier. Don't ever give anyone money for what seems like impressive picks.

a little math.

Postby matmat » Mon Oct 13, 2003 11:33 am

just thought I throw this in...

since his picks were 99% sure, that means that 1/100 times he would be wrong on each one of them, so the probability that he would be wrong on all of them is 1/1000000... I guess that means that he will not be wrong on all of them for the next

1000000/17 years = about 59000... years...
guess we better listen to him the next time he posts... O:-) O:-) O:-)
