Ran the simulation and was trying for the life of me to work out how the change 1 in 3 probability worked... until I realised it wasn't changing 1 in 3 - the simulation has a bug and is changing the choice every time, instead of one in three. The probability if it were changing 1 in 3 should be (1/3 x 2/3) + (2/3 x 1/3) = 4/9.... not 66%. Not sure if it's how you uploaded it to the page or if it's built wrong?

Oops, you're right! I fiddled with the interface and forgot to change the middle part. Fixed.

OK, but what about the Howie Mandel problem?
--Nick B Tue Jul 4 14:23:02 2006
"Howie Mandel's problem is that he treats the game very seriously"-- that's all I could google up...
If I had more energy and photoshop skill and creativity in general I'd try to photoshop up what the Howie Mandelbrot set would look like.

I ask because Howie Mandel hosts "Deal or No Deal", which is essentially "Let's Make a Deal" with 20 doors.

Oh, yeah, I've only seen bits and pieces of that. Seems super-stressfull, I guess part of the joy is watching the contestant squirm.
Was Howie Mandel that comedian who used to have hair and then inflate a rubber glove over his head? Or am I thinking of someone else?
--Kirk Wed Jul 5 08:12:16 2006
He is one and the same.

Weird. I guess I had no chance of recognizing him w/ the radical change in hairstyle. And he used to be skinnier, right?

... but now I get that urge to do the picking and switching myself ... game fever!

Hi, information in these pocdasts has changed my life. Thank you Ali, you helped me along with 4 steps by J. Schwartz and some other articles regain my life. You have presented really great techniques in these pocdasts, especially about fake it until you make it' and not reassuring oneself. I'm not completely over OCD but the improvement is sooo significant, i get small steps back (lapses) from time to time especially when I'm tired and don't have energy to fight back.But most of the time I'm really more agressive towards stupid senseless terorizing toughts. I think the worst thing you can do is change your life so that you don't get OCD and get worried about getting it. I.e. I stopped drinking coffee because of OCD what that did is drained me of any energy also the one to fight OCD. I would not recommend reducing 100% coffee if you like it because it causes more hurt than help (it causes anxiety itself).Thanks a lot, I'm going out to live my life again!! Cheers and kisses!!
