    ...and after filming, Al was savagely beaten by Emma for daring to imply she was an angry person.

    Emma is the hulk. Doesn't matter what you say, she's a maniac... maniac... on the dancefloor. Dancing like she's never danced before.

    That is indeed what I meant.

    I normally try to resist correcting people, but seeing as though you're usually quick to spot the mistakes, I couldn't help myself.

    Do we get to know how many names are in the chassis so we can calculate our odds of winning and then make conspiratorial claims of prize-fixing when the PS4 goes to @X-13?

    Not possible.

    You'd need to know:

    # how many entries there are
    # how they're arranged in the chassis and
    # how they move when shaken

    It could be that your name is on the top, but when shaken moves down to the bottom corner [making it much, much harder to pick].

    When I win the PS3 just accept that physics doesn't like you.

    That's the general idea.

    Soon, BETT will refuse to host VeryPC because Emma could go on a rampage.

    I'm effectively holding their company hostage.

    I was only going for a low level of confidence using lunch-hour levels of brain activity. Which is to say, 1/entrants. I can't even be bothered to work out the sum probability for all 31 days taking into account the slowly decreasing number of entrants (based on the assumption that everyone who wants to enter has already entered).

    If you only want a PS3 btw, I'll send you mine in exchange for the PS4 in that top box. Stupid whiney PS3. "Ooh I need an update", "ooh I wasn't turned off properly last time", if Emma had to deal with that then the PS3 would have been straight out the window the first time it was turned on, I tell you.

    Santander has GLaDOS? If so, yes.

    As I work in a bank... you should give me all your money for safekeeping.
