Oh Yahoo Sports, they entertain me so…

An email from a friend of mine:

…they have a new “sliding scale” thing for their polls.  One question was: “How many of the double digits seeds that won (on Thurs/Friday) will make the Sweet 16?”  On one end of the scale was “none” on the other “5 or more”.  Seems straightforward enough.  Their sliding scale had 10 total partitions, the middle 8 all unlabeled.  This is why people don’t trust “statisticians”…..

Here  (Scroll to the end of the article) is a link to an example of one of these “polls”.

Cheers.
