Comic #3565

1 Jane Goodall: Well, I've established common ground for using mathematical principles to develop logic.
2 Jane Goodall: But we've reached a stumbling block with the Monty Hall problem.
3 Terry: They don't believe that swapping doors gives you a better chance of winning the car?
4 Jane Goodall: They're mites. They don't understand why you'd want a car rather than a goat.

The Monty Hall problem is too big for me to go into in any detail here. The Wikipedia article is pretty good and explains it fairly well.

Despite which, it still generates so much confusion that apparently they had to write a special script just to keep up with all of the article's talk page comments.

Just like the Astrophysics Department motto, the Statistics Department should have one about the Monty Hall problem.
