Yakov Smirnoff advances, and Halftime!

Best argument yesterday came from Yuling:

I want to learn more about missing data analysis from the seminar so I like Harry Houdini. But Yakov Smirnoff is indeed better for this topic — both Vodka and the Soviet are treatments that guarantee everyone to be Missing Completely at Random, and as statistican we definitely prefer Missing Completely at Random.

And now the contest is halfway done! We’re through with the first round. Second round will start tomorrow.
