  Thu. 6/24/10 12:08am max:

first time actually to a whole listening live!
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:10am Kendall!:

Butter, Cream Cheese, or Both? Or Jelly? Or Flavored Cream Cheese? I do both butter and cream cheese.
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:11am max:

woooowww... i just saw what I typed, I need sleep
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:11am max:

Flavored Cream Cheese wins
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:15am max:

well, not all flavors
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:16am Kendall!:

Edward Murrow
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:19am max:

wait a minute, is this show stats/sally seltmann? or is the upcoming events thing wrong?
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:23am bennett4senate:

hey I heard that Vermont is trying to be the first place in the U.S. that is going to pass regional standards about its food, like in France
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:28am max:

  Thu. 6/24/10 12:28am john:

Speed stick musk is the best deodorant ever, even with the offensive grips. It's musky scent is a hilarious day-brightener every time, and yet it actually isn't that gross. Plus, you gotta love the manly 70s brown stripes.
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:29am bennett4senate:

i think this packaging is pretty good: http://www.aubrey-organics.com/images/products/product%20images/175_290/deodorants/eplus_high_c.jpg Good name too
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:38am Doug:

Florence Nightingale was a statistician,
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:39am Doug:

There are many quotes about statistics.
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:41am max:

that mark twain book sounds awesome
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:41am Doug:

jessica lynch
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:42am Doug:

Look at the goddam messages
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:46am max:

so sally seltmann is a hoax?
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:50am Gus:

a measurement of a population?
  Thu. 6/24/10 12:50am max:

or a "sample"
  Thu. 6/24/10 1:12am Doug:

A census is not a statistic, right. Statistics deal with samples, a census deals with population, the entirety.
  Thu. 6/24/10 1:15am max:

stats can be samples and population, i'm pretty sure
  Thu. 6/24/10 1:23am kate:

unexplained standard deviation!
  Thu. 6/24/10 1:24am Kendall!:

Student was just his pen name, it wasn't his real name. His real name was Gosset he used the name "Student" when submitting his work because he didn't want his employers to know he was making his work public.
  Thu. 6/24/10 1:40am stuart:

nice song
  Thu. 6/24/10 1:41am dave from knoxville:

That went fast. Was fun, but I didn't make any of the points I intended to, except for that basketball thing. Oh well. And as for the question above, you talk about numbers that summarize both samples and populations; with samples they are called "statistics'; with populations they are called 'parameters'.
  Thu. 6/24/10 1:52am stuart in nashville:

love this song, alex chilton plays this. Never heard the original. Thanks dave and sandy.
  Thu. 6/24/10 1:53am Nicole:

Sally Seltmann set was amazing
  Thu. 6/24/10 1:56am Kendall!:

She's quite a lady. Please tell her I think she is pretty, and her voice is handsome.

Also I enjoyed the math talk. I always enjoy math talk.
  Thu. 6/24/10 2:00am dave from knoxville:

If only WFMU had a weekly math show. Did anyone who knows math notice if I made any egregious errors?
  Thu. 6/24/10 2:01am stuart in nashville:

i wouldn't know I can barely get the math problem right to post a comment
  Thu. 6/24/10 2:05am stuart in nashville:

  Thu. 6/24/10 2:07am max:

well done Dave (from Knoxville), math class would have probably been way better if I had you for a math teacher, I just wrote an exam on statistics, while I'm not that good at math I'm pretty sure everything you said checks out
  Thu. 6/24/10 2:09am stuart in nashville:

Sandy on the lamb
  Thu. 6/24/10 2:10am stuart in nashville:

watch out for the lamb. it's baaaah-d
  Thu. 6/24/10 2:11am max:

  Thu. 6/24/10 2:13am stuart in nashville:

watch out for those sheep too
  Thu. 6/24/10 2:13am dave from knoxville:

You know, I have been interviewed by 4 people in my life, and Dave and Sandy are 2 of the best! You guys can use that as an endorsement if you like.
  Thu. 6/24/10 2:19am max:

wow, in podcast form I never "got" relaxation radio, but at 3 am (where I am) it makes a lot of sense
  Thu. 6/24/10 2:26am Nicole:

Yes it was built around a tree
  Thu. 6/24/10 2:27am Nicole:

There was a tree in their master bedroom
  Thu. 6/24/10 2:29am dave from knoxville:

I love that Kendall said he nailed up "about two" boards; I don't think I have ever heard a reference to approximately two.
  Thu. 6/24/10 2:30am max:

for future reference, does anyone know if calling WFMU is toll-free, or would calling from far away cost a lot for long distance
  Thu. 6/24/10 2:44am max:

you guys should get the dentist who played the kid in Troll 2 on the show
  Thu. 6/24/10 2:54am Doug:

Thanks for another good show.
  Thu. 6/24/10 2:58am minnesota jeff:

max - I don't think its toll free. But lots of cell phone plans have unlimited minutes after certain times of the evening / early morning. So I am hoping mine is like that, becuase I am calling long distance.
  Thu. 6/24/10 3:02am max:

thanks for the info jeff, good show tonight guys
  Thu. 6/24/10 5:37pm matt k.:

The thing with the rock sucking is "Molloy" by Samuel Beckett, who also wrote Waiting for Godot..
