Is there anyway to put reaction images from a folder on my hard drive or is it only links?

Aight I got stuck in a meeting but I'm on lunch now so here are my super fancy high-tech statistics for the day crowd

First the analysis of the poll results for release day:

oldercoldervoice wrote:I got bored and threw some statistics at basedvulpes' score release date question

First of all I had to manipulate the data because some clown put July 2nd, 2014 as the release date and, because I assume said clown doesn't really think the scores will arrive via time travel, I went ahead and changed that data point to reflect the year that it actually currently is.

Average answer was the 30th at 2:11 pm with a standard deviation of just under two days and a margin of error of 7/10ths of a day. What this really means is that ~65% of shitpoasters think the release date will be within two days of the 30th and we can say with 95% confidence that the average shitpoaster believes the score will come out sometime between late in the night of the 29th and early in the morning of the 1st.

HOWEVER, that's super fucking boring, so I am instead choosing to purposely misinterpret my data and state here with 95% confidence that scores are coming out sometime on the 30th. Take heed LSAC, the omniscient shitpoasters have spoken.


And the analysis based on actual past release dates:

oldercoldervoice wrote:Okay the average time to release scores for the last 11 years was 21 days from the date of the test (for all administrations, not just June), which would put us at the 29th. The margin of error is a little over one day, which means the 95% confidence guess for the actual release day would be sometime on the 28th, 29th, or 30th. Obviously this fails to account for the fact that the 28th is a Sunday, and will almost definitely not be the release date. So my official 95% confidence guess is either the 29th or the 30th.

In retrospect this is not revolutionary information but now it has statistics behind it so

To summarize:

Most shitpoasters think the release date will be within 2 days of the 30th, and the average shitpoaster thinks it will be sometime between late in the night of the 29th and early in the morning of the 1st

However, historical data suggest that shitpoasters are being somewhat overcautious in their assessment. If this year's release date conforms to the average of 21 days (and June tests almost always do) we can be confident of receiving our scores within one day of the 29th

That seems pretty cool. Can you cross check that with the statistics on how many days early compared to the actual release date?

Historically are they released in business hours? Or in the middle of the night?

Also apparently the February 2014 scores were released on a Sunday so???? That's not entirely unprecedented

I can run that when I get home if anyone's interested, but honestly I don't know how useful that would be. LSAC's release date estimations are kind of all over the place.
