    I think McDonalds is fairly edible.

    It's not good, but if I need food and I'm low on money, I'll eat there.

    I tried to write "but that" and my hands naturally wrote "butt hat", which is vastly superior in every way.

    fram is constantly crunching numbers to figure out the probability of each case's contents, and whether or not the deal being offered is a sane one.

    It's kinda like poker; there's a mix of chance and strategy. But everyone that goes on there has a shitty strategy.

    Last week, this lady had three cases left. Two had a million dollars in them. One had, I don't know, like 400 or something. Her deal was something like $640,000. The smart thing to do was to take the fucking deal, because if she opened another case, the odds were 2 in 3 that it'd be a million dollars, and her deal would go drop some $200,000.

    But she reasoned, like everyone on that show always reasons, that her case had a 2/3 chance of having a million dollars, so she picked another case. It held a million, and her deal dropped to four hundred-odd thousand, which she took. She gambled two hundred thousand dollars on a 1/3 chance, and lost.

    watching people who get offered 600,000+ and walk away with 200,000 less than that

    and almost walking away with 599,600 less

    I actually made a C# application (more to try to learn some C# than anything else) that allows you to update case values on the fly and open or close cases and calculates the expected return.

    Really, how good a deal is comes down to your expected return on subsequent rounds, which works out to the average of the expected return for each possible outcome, making it a combinatorial problem along with a statistical one.

    i also dont understand why people dont think that while there was 9 or so 1,000,000 dollar cases out there

    the one she picked had a 60% chance that it wasnt $1,000,000. and it doesnt ever change throughout the game.

    No, it changes. If you end up with 3 cases and a million is still up there, now you have a 1/3 chance at having a million.

    I know what you're gonna say, you're gonna say "Monty Hall problem," but Monty Hall doesn't apply here because nobody knows what's in the cases before they get opened. In the Monty Hall problem, the door opener does know.

    Three doors. One's got a car, two have donkeys. (Let's just take it as assumed you want the car. Maybe you're allergic to donkeys.) You pick a door, Monty says "But wait!" and opens one of the other doors, revealing a donkey. He gives you the opportunity to switch, do you?

    I forgot to explicitly mention it, but this is assuming Monty knows where the car is, and won't open that door.
