If you just stfu and let people play, didn't try and psych out statistics and let people settle their differences without stepping in, maybe people would learn to settle their differences independent of outside influence
They wouldn't.

because when you think about it

d(Riot)/dX=RiotDerivative

d^2Riot/dX^2=Riot2ndDerivative

Therefore

∫ (RiotDerivative) dX=Riot

So RiotDerivative is actually an account controlled by the Riot Games hivemind.

QED.

But companies have power over people?

I mean if you don't know something we don't know then you are in no position to say such a thing, and if you do know something we don't, then you are not only holding power over us, you are keeping it from us also.

I'm a stuffy statistician, dont worry about it. i'm finishing up my degree at UoM and yeah, you're definitely right in saying that because they come from the same population isn't a case of correlation vs causation. Being that you just ran the variables against each other within the same pop there is no inference or extrapolation happening. Simply an analysis.

On a side note, as a statistician myself I recently took Calculus 4: Multivariate & Vector calc and am wondering how applicable this stuff is in real world use. I'm assuming that there are programs and everything already in place and that the need to use spherical/polar/cylindrical coordinates in triple integrals isn't ever practiced. How much modeling do you do that is anything beyond possibly calculus 2?

that post just made me feel incredibly dumb. .-.

You are correct that correlation != causation, but it can be assumed that this statistic was computed from a population. That is, this statement comes straight from the data and is not an inference about future data.

But the way the data is presented implies that one is a cause of the other.
