Not a toilet in the country has not been affected by the Ping in one way or another.

Why Monty Hall Rules

There’s only one reason, really: there’s an entire paradox named after him.

It doesn’t hurt that Let’s Make a Deal is still entertaining after all these years. GSN shows plenty of old episodes, and trying out pricing games from 35-45 years ago is juuust a little more challenging now than it was then.

Weird how so many people got it wrong. The answer should be more obvious if one takes into account that the game host KNOWS where the car is – he looked behind the doors!

The monty hall problem was featured in the recent movie “21”, and also in the book “the curious incident of the dog in the night time” – which actually has a very good explanation of the problem.

Of course, the problem is tossed out if there is a fourth door…

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
