Friday party!

Nate Silver called 49/50 states in 2008 and 50/50 states in 2012, showing how useless pundits are. Colbert covers the story (so does Jon Stewart):



Nate is probably partying (in a geeky way) but you should too: statistics are useful.

Oh, and I agree that a bet is a tax on bullshit. I'd love to see politicians pay $1 million for every lie and pundits pay $1000 every time their predictions are wrong.
