    They're probably going to lose against Memphis, but Cleveland at home should be a win. Dallas and Golden State are toss-ups right now, but they should at least be up to 7-13 by the end of game 20.

    Good idea for a poll. Bad choice not making votes public. We need to have the ability to humiliate people when they make stupid predictions.

    I picked whatever you did (was it 5-15?) so unless you're a self-flogger I should be OK.

    Is it possible to change the default settings for the poll stuff to public? Unless maybe we're voting someone off the forum what reason is there to have a non-public one? It's an internet forum.

    It's not hidden. Who voted what wasn't logged.

    He's a guy. Aren't we all self-floggers?

    If we win tonight, my 7-13 vote is looking very good.

    Looks like the collective intelligence of the crowd nailed the probability distribution.

    You are such a nerd, and I'm totally OK with that.

    This is good.
    He is no Jack London, but still:

    During the 2003 Iraq War, he started touring with the United Service Organizations to entertain troops overseas while remaining against the war, leading him to once cause a stir at a base in Kyrgyzstan when he told the crowd: "Your commander would never lie to you. That's the vice president's job."[59

    The irony is that this is a bimodal distribution. If you combine the collective intelligence of both of the optimists and pessimists (and even if you remove the silly outliers), then you have a fully functioning prediction machine - the average was 6.25 wins, which was a great guess.

    Well, the Pistons ended up 6-14. Since it wasn't a public poll, I am going to claim congratulations to myself for correctly predicting 6-14. :first:

    Actually, I subscribed and took screenshots every time I got a notification. You picked 11 wins. I stored all of that information on backup tapes, but I don't keep tapes anymore since I converted to digital. You'll have to trust me on that.

    Perhaps I was safer just quoting my own post where I only missed by one win.....

    I took my kid to Sesame Street on Ice a few years ago.
    Grover has one helluva triple sow cow!

    You took your kid to a Sesame Street show while on ice? That sounds like a bad influence on a kid, not to mention dangerous.

    Oh no no no, CJ.
    It was an ice skating show featuring Sesame Street characters.
    ...And my daughter (4 yrs old at the time) and I took a whole bunch of mushrooms which made the show freaking amazing!

    Watching Cookie Monster's face melt with my daughter was a bonding experience that both of us will never forget.
