Tony, people often laugh at me, you get used to it, but I will say...

1. History has proven several times now that those who laughed at me were proven wrong (and I can prove that on two occasions).

2. Besides, our world needs more laughter, and if people laughing at me adds a bit of fun to our world, then being a jester, or fool, is perhaps no bad thing.

I agree that a jester and a fool aren't always the same thing. If I wanted to be cruel, I would have likened TT to a village Wink

A broken clock is right twice a day - it doesnt prove its any good.

Even trained chimps (no offence) get things right on occasion. It doesnt however overdo the thousands of other times they get it wrong.

indeed GrahamO, indeed.

Look at my mathematically based brier score on predictions from the good judgement project below. I am correct more often than I am wrong. Hard as that may be to believe.

GrahamO, that all said, you are correct in what you say. But I am happy to be judged by the maths.
