I mentioned this in the Weekend Reads, but its worth revisiting — the video is tells a fascinating story:

Coach Kevin Kelley of Pulaski Academy in Little Rock, Arkansas, instructs his players to never punt, never field punts, and only do onside kicks, and he claims that math backs up his innovative philosophy. Grantland spent some time with Kelley and his players to learn more about the coach behind the team that once scored 29 points before its opponent touched the ball.

    Hi Barry
    Maybe you should do something similar ….
    - Don’t short if the price is above the 200 day moving average because the odds are XX% of success
    - Ignore the Hindenburg Omen because the odds are XX% of success
    and etc. ….

    Cheers … Peter
