Fall Reviews Decided

Well, the article
requesting your opinions has scrolled off the main
page. The final vote is in: six votes for
Smallville, five for Birds Of Prey,
four for Firefly, two for Angel, and
none for Buffy. Statistically, the top three
are tied. (Uncertainty on a counted quantity is the
square root of that quantity.) So, I’ll review all
three pilots, and keep reviewing all three as long as
I have time for it. When I start to run out of time,
I’ll drop the one whose reviews get the fewest page
hits. (Or, if Fox stays true to form, I’ll stop
reviewing Firefly because it’ll have been
cancelled.)

      I’ve never taken a statistics course. I’ve
      covered the material from one, though. I need it, since
      I’m doing a thesis on experimental particle physics. I
      have to take the data from approximately 1.44 million
      events and decide on the values and uncertainties of 9
      different numbers.
