A census taker one tried to test me. I ate his Derby with some fava beans and a nice Chianti. | Week 35

ok... I was in a hurry and didn't have time to find a quote. 

 

The best one (IMO) someone gives will be the title.

Go home. Forget this Derby. I can recognize an obsession, no good will come of it.

 

The trick is to never stop looking, there's always another Derby.

Matches to watch:

Litio v TheXper (L5)

POTUS v The Fast and the Furiosa (L2)

2 very tight races here with barely any movies more than a million apart in estimates. Average of differences in guesses for Litio v TheXper is 0.4 while 0.68 is the average distance between POTUS & Furiosa's guesses. Not a lot of potentially determining films here aside from The Meg and MI6 for Litio v Xper, even the 1.7 difference for Crazy Rich Asians between POTUS & Furiosa is dulled by the percentage swing being lessened.

 

Will I continue my streak...of losing when playing against Top 3 players? Probably. My record's 1-6 or thereabouts including 3 losses against this weekend's opponent. Lots of divergences here, including my $9.8M on Operation Finale (highest of anybody's guess) and several 1M differences among the lower-gossing movies. Stand by the 9.8 but damn, really wish I'd gone with 5.5 for Happytime. This will probably be a lop-sided affair.

Another match-up that could be a blow-out is Empire v boxofficeth, with 7 movies with 1M+ difference in guesses (and 3 closer to 2M).

The highest average divergence, however, belongs to Deja23 v Keanu thanks to a likely-typo'd 1.5M guess on The Meg.

Other than that, the biggest difference in a movie's guess belongs to Tower v PanaMovie 6.34 v 9.34 for Operation Finale along with another gulf for Searching (3.41 v 6) that'll go long way to determine this match-up given 4 films are within 0.11 of each other.

 

Sunday Update:

Not too many close ones here, looks like only PanaMovie v Tower and possibly TalismanRing v Boxx93 could change with actuals.

I did pretty well on everything EXCEPT Searching which I both underestimated AND didn’t think would get previews. Be interesting to see if it can blow a big enough hole in my score to take me out all by itself.

Ask Andy to change it for you, he might do it. It's worth asking.

Seriously?

Boxx93 81.89
TalismanRing 81.89

Better not be... I don't think I have a tie-breaker defined.

 

If not I will flip a coin and new/holdover % will be the tiebreaker.

Hmm. I got a slightly different answer than POTUS, perhaps I'm doing it wrong?

 

Anyway, by my (possibly questionable) math, it wasn't literally a tie, it was just really, really close, depending on how many digits you go out to.

 

Boxx93: 81.9067

TalismanRing: 81.8733

My numbers differ a bit from Wrath's but also show Boxx93 in the lead, rounding to 2 decimals they up with AndyLL's 81.89-81.89 tie:

 

Boxx93: 81.893

TalismanRing: 81.886

 

We could stay true to the thread's title and see which player can find the other and consume their liver first err...we can make that plan B, I guess.
