    right.

    you also need to take the narsyphus formula into consideration (narcissus + sisyphus quadratics). the first order differential will tell you how vain sf members are and integrating will yield the futility of their... ah well you get the picture.

    unfortunately not a statistics phd :/

    However, why not just sample from the empirical distribution, and bootstrap for asymmetric (if the distribution is asymmetric) confidence intervals?

    But I like the regression approach more, I think it would be very feasible to predict weight from what people have bought, e.g., rick owens is negatively correlated with weight, EG interacts with race, so if you are white and buy EG, you are on the heavy side, if asian, less so?

    you're drunk (or posing) if you think you'd get an R(squared) of .8 from any 'natural' data set.

    The post is a joke, I don't think anyone here is creating a linear regression model on sf members height and weight. I just put a random number in, apologies for not using realistic numbers for my theoretical regression model. Please if you would like to go ahead and write in a more realistic number go ahead.

    ah, fair enough...given the model you specified, weight as y, height and clothes size as x, think something in the range of .2 would even be optimistic. likely lots of error as well (ie, big confidence intervals around coefficient estimates).

    lol, what? distribution of the dependent variable doesn't matter provided they're IID and the errors are assumed (and checked) to be normal.

    i actually really like the fit of everything, but yeah not feeling the footwear.

    also, since this is a weekend and no one's telling you what to do, I'd either go all out and rock a textured tie or lose the shirt and ps and don a tee for dat SWD uniform look. your current look is pretty good but lacking in punch nameen

    edit: wait, are those jeans? aiiight definitely go with a tee unless you're more of a serious chap, in which case carry on with the current look

    Challenged myself to wear blue jeans. Further challenged myself to wear boots with them instead of sneakers. Haha.
    And yes I tried not cuffing and it looked bad so I don't wanna hear it
