I dunno, the reasoning behind the Doomsday Argument sounds pretty specious to me.

Well, think of it this way.  Suppose, hypothetically, that a creature from the far future, say billions of years from now, went back in time to the present day and told you that he knew how many humans would eventually be born.  He asked you to guess whether you were one of the first 1% of all humans to be born, or one of the last 1% of all humans born, or one of the 98% in the middle.  If you guess correctly, then you get some huge prize, like $1 million.

Would you guess the middle 98%?  Figuring that, hey, the vast majority of humans ever born at some point in history will be in that middle 98%, so picking that one gives me the best odds?  Or would you say that no, I'm no more likely to be in the first 1% as the middle 98% as the last 1%, so I might as well guess randomly among the three options?

I guess I also said I'd talk about "Red State, Blue State, Rich State, Poor State" in this thread.  Here are some fun graphs from the book, showing how there's a huge divide between rich and poor voters within poor states, but not much of a systematic difference between the two in rich states (data from 2004 election):







Here's the ~4.5 minute synopsis:

OK, important question.  If "Republicans" spelled backwards was a word, how would it be pronounced?  I vote for "SNAS-ill-BOO-per", where "snas" rhymes with "grass".

For variance's sake, I'm going to violate the 'c' here and go with "SNAK-eh-lib-UH-per", which may or may not sound quasi-sexual and political.

I just found it.  Here's a link:

EDIT: Actually, wait.  Maybe that's not the right thread.  What board was it on again?

I was told it was on the Chad Dicksword of Pennsylvania's 13th Electoral District's Board for Threads about Digging Holes around Your State Representative's Ancestor's Graves in Order to Find Incriminating Evidence Indicating Said Legislator's Grandfather Was Involved in Child Prostitution and Illegally Importing Chestnuts, a child board of the infamous Odd sh**t You Just Made Up That Indicates Your Need for Correctional Action board.

Oh, there it is. It was hidden in the People With an Insatiable Desire to Eat All of the Beans board. Endless apologies.

Ah, the old CDP13EDBTDHYSRAGOFIEISLGWICPIIC, a child board of the OSYJMUTIYNCA board.  Shouldn't be too hard to find then, since I don't think the board is all that active.

Though, honestly, I thought it might be this thread:

https://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=172718.0

Since, apparently, if you read that thread, you'll understand Miles's problem.
