    “Let’s Make a Deal” is the classic example of statistics not being very intuitive. If you had just one chance to pick a door, it would be easy: a one in three chance to win. After you pick though, Monty opens one of the wrong doors and asks you if you want to switch. The people who switch win more often than those who don’t. (I think it’s two in three for switchers, and one in three for non-switchers, but don’t quote me on that.) Ouch. Brian need advil.
