Bayesians are frequentists. What I mean is, the Bayesian prior distribution corresponds to the frequentist sample space: it’s the set of problems for which a particular statistical model or procedure will be applied. I was thinking about this in the context of this question from Vlad Malik: I noticed this comment on Twitter in reference […] The post Bayesians are frequentists appeared ...

In English, we often drop the subject of a phrase, such as in these signs: Who are these signs written for? It's really *You, stop* or *You, yield* or *You, be alert for bears* (I'm not doing it). After internalizing a language, we can take hints without explicit instructions. But, to put it politely, math isn't usually well-internalized. Let's get clear about who the "math signs" are referring...

Leo Egidi shares his 2018 World Cup model, which he’s fitting in Stan. But I don’t like this: First, something’s missing. Where’s the U.S.?? More seriously, what’s with that “16.74%” thing? So bogus.
