@"Sui Generis II"

Semi Serious Post.

This paper

http://rsbl.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/10/2/20130966

shows that there is a strong correlation between looks and performance in the tour de france.



The business idea is simple.

When the next tour de france comes, bet on the best looking cyclists with poor betting odds, and bet against ugly cyclists with good betting odds. We will use a statistical model to exploit the arbitrage oppurtunity of the predictive value of the signal we are using (it is a lot), vs the betting odds (based on other signals, probabily unrelated to looks)

Since we are tapping into a signal that the public has deluded itself into believing doesn't exist, we stand to make buck with this information arbitrage.

The business idea is simple.

When the next tour de france comes, bet on the best looking cyclists, and bet against ugly cyclists. We will use a more sophisticated model to ensure that the bets will yield a profit according to the predictive value of looks (it is a lot)

damn, this is kind of legit

i would be proud if you were my son

Good post.

I'm trying to think of a way where one could invest in different salesman (at like a sales expo) and place money behind the attractive salesmen to multiply my investments.

We need to start measuring all sorts of different competitions (other sports/politics/award ceremonies) to determine if there's betting on the subject matter and whether there's a strong correlation between looks and the winners.

In the USA the tallest President candidate always won.
