    Rodent Shows His Prowess

    "everyoner" ?

    Well rodent, you might not understasnd those correlation "coefficients" you blabber about, but you have excellent skills in spotting an obvious typo.

    I'm going to guess that you graduated from junior high school.

    • I didn't attend junior high school. I went from 8th grade to high school then BS, MS and PhD.
      I had one statistics class as an undergrad and two more while in graduate school.

      Before I calculate the answer to your equation, you comment on the shoe size example.

        Give me the year you got your PhD, and what was your dissertation on.

        What statistical program did you use for your dissertation? If it was a qualitative study, which method did you use? Who's philosophy of science did you choose in making your choice regarding which kind of dissertation you used.

        This drooler is TeeJerk..... and he cannot answer ANY of the questions.

        C'mon brave boy..... bring it.

        Sentiment: Strong Sell

        "I didn't attend junior high school. I went from 8th grade to high school then BS, MS and PhD.

        Really, what did you get your PhD in?

        "Before I calculate the answer to your equation, you comment on the shoe size example"

        I already commented Dr. Typist. In the case you gave, correlation did not imply causation. But finding a single example of correlation not implying causation does not prove your claim that correlation NEVER implies casusation. How many times do I have to explain that to you?

      Rodent, you already established yourself as a junior high school grad.

      Let's now try some high school math.

      Consider the equation

      x squared + (s +t) x + (s)(t) = 0.

      What values of x are allowed (if any are allowed) Explain you answer. Oh wait, you will tell me that you will not explain because I would not understand it!

        Hey, I have another correlation question for you.

        Suppose some who claims to be a big expert on correlation "coefficients" is asked for the answer to just about the most simple question in that field. But instead of answering and humiliating the person making fun of him, he says "I will not answer because you could not understand it". What is the correlation with him not really knowing the answer? What is the correlation for him being too stupid to realize how lame his rodent trick is? What is the correlation with everyone knowing what is gioing on.
