[REBOL] Re: A Rebol Challenge. The Monty Hall Puzzle a Comedy..

From: james:mustard at: 20-Dec-2001 14:05

An interesting quote (someone may be able to find the whole thing for me) from Terry Pratchetts Discworld novels goes as follows: 1 in a million chances happen 9 out of 10 times... Its always interesting to note that people always assume a fair balanced world where things happen as expected. Imagine the uproar if people ever discovered that Monty - on hearing a contestants choice of door, decided to get the stage-crew to quickly swap the prize so the contestant never won... I wonder what the odds of that happening are... either monty likes-contestant? [monty-plays-fair][monty-cheats] The same could be said for quiz shows where contestants are fed answers :) James.
