I like to ask this one, so I of course know the answer.

It was 28IF. Paul was 28 years old at the time. The whole album cover spawned the "Pawl is dead" legend. I think the license plate was interpreted as "What if Paul died at 28?"



Pretty close. "28IF" was to indicate that when Abbey Road was released, Paul would have been "28 if" he had survived (even though he was actually 27 when the album was released.)

The full license plate actually reads "LMW 28IF", which can be interpreted as "Linda McCartney Weeps."

I don't know why I never asked before, but it this available in a Podcast? I looked but didn't find anything.

While you generally have nice eye candy accompanying you, I'd much rather listen while doing other stuff.

I'm afraid not. Thank you for your support.

Contrary to what I may have said the last Stream, the next one will be July 14.

I'm going to schedule the next Live Stream for July 21. I may have to do that one on my own, so please be patient with any technical difficulties.

I was just watching the live stream and I'm so confused by the answer to the first question.. what am I missing?

https://youtu.be/vxL3UnsHaws?t=456

Question: If dealt a 3 of a kind in video poker, what are the odds you will get a 4oak?

Answer (by the wizard): ~ 1/180

Is there something else implied here?

If I discard 2 cards for 2 new cards, I would expect to have 1/47+46/47*1/46 = 1/23.5 or ~4.2%

This seems so obvious that I can't believe there's no comment in the chat or the comment section for the video?

Just an update to an old livestream topic concerning Elvis Presley disappearing from Las Vegas culture. I can confirm that several Elvises hang out at the "Fabulous Las Vegas" sign, available for tourist photo ops.

So it is still possible to spot the king driving down the Strip.

Question:

Do you know Ski Wagaski, who has done extensive data collection over the years on Sigma Derby, and is well-known to regulars at The D and on the Sigma Derby Facebook page?

Would you have any interest in revisiting your analysis of the game given more credible information?
