There exists a gambling fallacy – one that applies to many games, but is especially evident in roulette – in which a player believes that if the bouncing ball has landed on red enough times, black is bound to come up next. There are a few other ways to play this particular gambit on a [...]

Armando Benitez has cursed us all, and the founder of Benitez Has Cursed Us, David Schubert, wants you all to stand up and recognize, yo.  If you think that sentence makes no sense, then you should try following the stream of semi-consciousness that is Schube’s Twitter feed.  He’s a sucker for misspelled words and ignorance, [...]
