The date of the next Live Stream will be Aug 29. I should be at Burning Man on that day, but, alas, it's not my year.

As always, I'm soliciting questions here if I don't get enough from the live audience.



Can you talk about the odds and process for political betting and how the odds/probability are calculated?

I have tried to do some reading on it, and I do not fully understand it, because it seems like there are a lot of unknown variables?

There are some clear indicators for elections of individuals (such as incumbency, demographics of the eligible voters for that election etc....), but for other elections (and even the ones I mentioned), it seems like there is a lot of obscurity?

And, there are other more obscure bets, such as Brexit dates, possibility for random referendums, etc.... How are these possibilities calculated?

- How would you improve the ticketing process for Burning Man?

- If you could organize an alternative to Burning Man, what parts would you keep, and what parts would you change?

- Would you rather... Have your swimming pool filled with grasshoppers, or have a spider crawl in your ear while you were sleeping?

Good questions, please keep 'em coming. I like to have several on hand for each show.

As a reminder, there is a LS tomorrow at 3 PM.

I would guess since you own the business you are probably still at the office at 6pm.

You are the boss, and you have computers at the office, what is the problem?

Wizard, I understand you are very reluctant to put miles on your vehicle for frivolous things. For example, to drive to a convenience store for one item is probably something that you shake your head about. Is this true and would you like to elaborate?

How did you pick where you will be on 4/8/24? I seem to recall somewhere in TX.

My home is located within the totality path -- looks as though I'll get ~3:49 duration of totality.

Will the bright lights of city living effect my experience in any way?

Thoughts?

hell no I am not still in the office. 6pm is spending time with family. Tomorrow at 6pm I have baseball practice. I am the coach so would be tough to carry my phone and coach.

This is a reminder of Thursday's live stream. As usual, I'm soliciting questions. I'll try to get to the ones I forgot last week.
