    Yep, it's the one that explained it to me.

    Famous brain teaser

    let's try your logic with a million doors. Pick a door, there is a 1/1,000,000 chance of winning. There are 999,999 doors that lose so the host opens 999,998 of them. There are now only two doors. Do you think the odds are 50:50 here? Or do you think that the odds you picked a winner the first...

    Famous brain teaser

    It doesn't matter in that case. You've accidentally arrived at the exact same situation. You still have a 2:1 better chance switching at that stage.

    Famous brain teaser

    It really isn't. Try it with a pen and paper, it's 2/3 and 1/3. Again, this is why it is a famous puzzle.

    Famous brain teaser

    I like doing it with a million doors. When you pick your door you have a 1 in a million chance that you've got the car. And a 999,999/1,000,000 chance it is one of the other doors. You pick door number #327. At this point you can be virtually certain you don't have the right door. The host...

    Ukraine counter offensive

    A lot of them are air launched, from either Russian, Belarus airspace or over the black sea.

    Ukraine counter offensive

    Ukraine is not all urban warfare. Probably not even mostly in terms of casualties.

    Multiple convictions (Zara Aleena murder)

    It's only going to get worse in the short term.

    Autumn statement.

    The real terms cuts for all budgets was a bit more subtle than we're used to. The tax rises were sensible, although corporation tax wasn't adjusted nor capital gains tax if memory serves. It was all deliberately leaked to avoid excitement.

    would you allow your kid to take up Boxing?

    Not a chance. CTE is nasty and everything so far shows that even amateurs suffer from it.

    Immigration Crisis

    Wasn't the OSB thing part of the process that was costing a million pounds per person? It also won't work for the UK as the channel isn't that wide. Also we've tried something like that with Rwanda, at huge expense. The pushbacks are illegal and are mush less safe in the channel. Plus the...

    Immigration Crisis

    Much as the home office try to pretend to be idiots there are some smart people there. If it were easy and legal they'd have done it by now. Pretending there's a simple, easy fix is kidding yourself.

    Immigration Crisis

    Afghanistan counts and they make up a significant chunk of current asylum seekers.

    Ukraine counter offensive

    It is possible that an anti aircraft missile from Ukraine went rogue. Some of the pictures do look like they could be from a S300 air defence missile. If they were aiming at a target closer to the Polish border than the launch site then a miss could have landed in Poland. Or the missile might...

    Cancel Sky

    That's not correct. Some Kodi devices have had illicit streaming add-ons installed. Those break the law. Kodi itself is not illegal.

    A basic metric for clear pricing from energy suppliers

    The exact prices vary by region, payment method and meter type.

    A basic metric for clear pricing from energy suppliers

    It isn't as suppliers are allowed to charge different amounts depending on your location. When the market is operating you can use things like USwitch to find the best rates, and those include kWh rates.

    A basic metric for clear pricing from energy suppliers

    For variable rates at the moment they are all the same at the moment. Once the price guarantee ends it's worth discussing but right now it's just odd.
