Math and BBQ

Math is hard. So hard, in fact, that most humans would rather deal with nice round numbers than think about the ramifications of real data. Anthony and Jeff discuss Attribute Framing, and its impact on advertising and civil discourse. Then, Ron and Diana Watson in Witchita have eaten the same single meal every day for 15 years. Jeff and Anthony consider removing variables to such an extreme and whether it is a net positive for stress and anxiety.
