I am very tempted to use this if the need should arise. If the interview is going bad and my mood allows it, I will use this.

He was probably a fellow SFer. Doesn't this place have a secret signal--or have I said too much?

Think about it.
probability problems are the worse. Granted, the maths is not my strength. But I have asked some really nerdy math people who love calculus and trigonometry some probability questions that they even stumble on. I have always held statistics in the highest regard when it comes to the math field.

Works like a charm.
I like this, if the interview is going well this probably a great way to buy yourself some time to reformulate your canned answer if you have one.
