Evolution of a Photoshop – Space Jam Edition

Evolution of a Photoshop – Space Jam Edition

Last week I was browsing Twitter (as I often do) when someone tweeted about their love of Space Jam and how no movie collection was complete with out it. She then mentioned that she didn’t own it and that it was no wonder why she was single.   For me the best part about Space Jam was that it lead the Harvard Sports Analysis Collective to compile this box score from the final game. But I’m weird like that.   Now, I...

Making $180 an Hour or Why I’m Going To Win a Kindle and You’re Not.

Making $180 an Hour or Why I’m Going To Win a Kindle and You’re Not.

The one thing someone can say to drive me nuts, when they find out I play poker, is “So you like to gamble?”   It’s less that “I like to gamble” and more “I love finding situations with positive expected value (EV)”.   And this is one heck of a plus EV situation.   So a friend of mine, Megan Squires, recently released a book that she has written called Traced: Part One of The Outlier Chronicles.  I’m only a couple of...
