Best comment yesterday came from Jan:
Now we have opportunity to see in the next round whether Julia is really that much better than Python!
But that doesn’t resolve anything! So to pick a winner we’ll have to go with Tom:
Python foresaw the replication crisis with their scientific method of proving someone is a witch but I fear that they would have to resort to talking about how they used to be funny. Springsteen could just bring a guitar and start playing – the only difficulty being that if you had something booked afterwards you might be a little late. Hmmm, not a particularly witty comment but still – onwards with Springsteen.
Today it’s the top-seeded person whose name ends in f, versus an unseeded GOAT. Sattouf is hilarious—but Lance does have a statistical principle named after him. So who should advance to the third round?
