The link to "quantum mechanics" as physicists know it is tenuous, but the link is that there is a unit at the heart of things. Here it is the "a bat" (but nothing sub-atomic). The purposes of the discussion, in my view, include (1) to have some fun (2) to learn something interesting or useful (in no particular order). Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk CJ Lan Forgive me as a novice to the quantum mechanics to ask the following question. How is the quantum mechanics to do with using "Is an .833 Hitter Better Than a .338 Hitter?" as an example? What is purpose of this discussion here? -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Stas Kolenikov Sent: Tuesday, November 15, 2011 3:49 PM To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: Re: st: Quantum mechanics in Stata On Tue, Nov 15, 2011 at 8:55 AM, Feiveson, Alan H.

Um... it is rather the other way around: I reproduced the example because it stuck in my head, but for the life of me, I would not remember where I would have read about it!
