ML Researcher rejected 3 of the 15 "Provide non-trivial facts" HITS that I submitted. All three of the tables I pulled them from were statistics covering one month of play of an American basketball team. I'm pretty sure that one of us isn't reading the table right and/or doesn't know much about basketball. I don't think it's me.
This is so stupid. I'm pissed off that I have to waste time correcting this bullshit. If it turns out that I did make the mistake I'll consume an appropriate amount of humility in a public forum to atone.

EDIT:


Seriously though. What are the chances that I comprehended the tables involving Premier League Soccer, Rugby, Cricket (Cricket FFS!), Golf, Baseball, and Roller Derby and then turned around and screwed up NBA basketball on all three attempts?

One of them was hockey it turns out. I clicked on the wrong one in HIT Tracker. I can't verify which one of us screwed up unless they send me the statements I submitted though.

rsmath @rsmath my kitty is back! :hearteyecat:
great to see a kitty! Too many dogs yesterday :wink: (watched a LIVEPD episode from last weekend which routinely has K9's on it and then the local news had a story or two featuring dogs).

fun fact - today is the anniversary of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.

I got plenty of dog photos too! LOL. Yesterday when I was sick in bed I wanted to get rid of my dogs. All they were doing was barking. At least my cat, Oktober, laid quietly on my belly making me feel better.

And wow! I love fun facts like that.

It's storming here and every time it thunders it scares my son, lol.
I'll probably keep him home from school. He was sent home yesterday for bad #2 and they kind of made it seem to keep him home today but it was my decision. With me being sick yesterday and his issues, I think I'll keep him home. Better safe than sorry.

Morning, all.

Going to be a short, barely functional day for me.

Yesterday I didn't give the little guy a nap and kept him up until 9 to get him to sleep past 5:30am. The result is that he was up at 4:40 and has been downright pissed all morning but doesn't want to be in bed.

So daddy has been a barely conscious jungle gym and now little dude is splashing in the shower with mama.

Not sure if I should take the 15 minutes to work or nap.

I'd say work because today will probably be better than tomorrow, so you should be able to sleep as much as you want tomorrow.
I agree about working but I'm pretty sure my 3 year old will be up at 4am tomorrow, given his pattern. I may just snort some coffee grounds and keep going.
