    Talk about anything non-XP related in this forum section.

    I just fixed breakfast, 2 eggs, bacon avo ex sharp cheddar scramble.

    I allus buy 'jumbo' eggs. Took 2 outta the carton, they were both double yolked eggs! Last dozen, the first 2 eggs outta the carton were double yolks also.

    What are the odds??

    Posts dont hafta be about computers!

    Once I saw a picture of a dozen eggs in a skillet, all of which were double-yolked!

    It is difficult to answer that question, isn't it. You are sampling from a heavily pre-selected sub group, on account of their size.

    Google says about one in a thousand of eggs laid by all chickens have two yolks, though for very young chickens, it is close to one in a hundred, but that does not help to estimate the proportion of very large eggs that are double yolks.


    If we had a little more information, we could get into Bayesian Inferences: now that is interesting territory.

    Strangely prophetic...

    It's funny how that works.

    Yesterday I was in my backyard with some friends grilling. I bought some nice rib-eyes, salmon, beef ribs, and of course burgers and dogs.

    I love this time of year. Gone is the oppressive suffocating hazy hot humid swamp weather. Gray hazy skies are replaced by brilliant azure blue. Beautiful sunny pleasant weather to be outdoors, no mosquitoes or other biting insects. I try to enjoy every day that I can in the fall because the pleasant weather doesn't last long. I also love the fall foliage. Pretty soon the cold will be here which I don't mind, much prefer it to summer here. Well, except the bitter cold with biting wind.
