Obviously 13% would've been a much more comfortable margin of victory, but this was not a contract laden with fine print, apparently even fun bets that aren't even attached to any monetary or physical meaning need lawyers to draw them out?

Will that result in a good BM or an angry one?

I am honestly wondering though because the way that I was taught math (albeit not at a University level) was that in this case I'd be the winner.

12.03% > 12%.

All SH% greater than 12% result in a win for BBO. All SH% less than 12% result in a loss for BBO. A SH% of exactly 12% results in a tie.

I don't see how this is even a question. If Eberle had taken 1 more shot without scoring, BBO would have lost.

All of the math that is needed here would've been learned at an elementary level. You won the bet, no ands, ifs, or buts about it, based on the information you've provided.

If it's getting this hairy over an avatar bet, I'd hate to think what a monetary bet would lead to...

BBO needs to claim some sort of victory since the last one he lost got him exiled to the leaf board for a month

12.03 > 12. You gotta be pretty dumb to dispute that.

Fine, the spiders will be called off for now......

It's actually been raining all night here but we could use it since summer is well on its way. But that extra .004 is a murderer I tell yah!

The fossil fuels part sounds much better than the former

My thoughts as well, luckily Eberle being as clutch as he is pulled this one out of the fire for me

That's what I thought, but I've been out of school for awhile so who knows what kind of crap they might be teaching now. If everyone on the board would give me 0.03% of their wealth (in my best Chapelle show voice) I'd be rich *****!

He stated that Eberle wouldn't shoot over 12%. Eberle shot over 12% it doesn't matter what numbers are used. Jadeddog needs to suck it up and take the month long avatar bet. He would have won if Eberle had a shooting percentage of 12% or lower. No ties in this bet.

Well, I'm leaving my sliderule out of this one. I have no dead horses being beat in this fish frying pan.


ps


but just for laughs could be a difference between how math is taught then and now.

There used to be an accepted concept of standardization to decimal point, or whole number, or tenths, 100ths, so on in establishing numerical answer in standardized format.

For instance 32.45 + 16.84 + 72.68 +113.13 -666.66 X 33.33 would, (when I took math) be acknowledged to represent a standardized decimal point. The expectation being that the answer would be denoted in second decimal point if the input data was grouped and standardized to that decimal point. You wouldn't for instance use 6 decimal pts to derive an answer. This answer would actually be marked wrong back in the day.

or

12 + 18+ 66 -2356 +9 X 558 would be standardized to whole number integers if the data set was rounded that way. You wouldn't denote the answer using .000 decimal pts.

So thus the argument becomes did the common vernacular use of whole numbers, as in 12, and 18, in this example denote whole number only derivation in the discussion and alleged agreement and transaction?

To decimal or not, that is the question.


ps I'm on a lark here, I'm no mathematician.

I'll vouch for jadeddog, if only because I'm BBO's nemesis.

12.03 < 12.00

There, I said it.

I think you used the wrong word there Cloned, I believe nimwit was the word that you were looking for is you believe that 12.00 >12.03 BTW-The spiders are in the mail.

If jaded dog had stated it was rounded to whole number then he would have a case. He didn't all he said was that Eberle's shooting percentage would be 12% or lower. Therefore since his shooting percentage is actually above 12% he has to honour the bet. Even if it was 12.000000001 % he still would have lost the bet.

Eberle's shooting percentage wasn't greater than 12%. It was 12%. Twelve point something percent, but not greater than any number between 12 and 13.

jaded, that's all I got for you buddy.

As the wearer of many, many grotesque and abhorrent avatars for endless months through many, many lost bets... I'd say the loser should just suck it up and take the medicine.

Nothing worse than a sore loser who squirms out of a bet.

The summer is actually the best time to "take your medicine" and sport an ugly avatar anyway as there are comparatively few regulars here in the Oilers forums this time of year.

"Luckily", like clockwork there is never any playoffs for our fabulous franchise and almost everyone is off doing something else (sensible) rather than suffering watching them flounder on the ice.

Any embarrassment from a lost bet is minimal at this time of year.
