so I entered the ban lottery
    #112513 - 08/21/08 09:09 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

It says Tangerines, Phriend, b0b gnarley, MFDoom666, and 0xYg3n have already entered, and that my chances of being banned are 1:5 (20%)

This is clearly incorrect

Yep, I just tried it too, looks like it tells you the odds prior to your entry when you enter.

Current ban odds are 1:7 (14.3%)
These people have entered the ban lottery this week:
Tangerines, Phriend, b0b gnarley, MFDoom666, 0xYg3n, Harry_Ba11sach, Sativus



That looks OK to me, except that Coaster isn't listed.

Yes, it's correct before you join.  But after you join, the odds aren't updated to include your presence. (I don't think this is worth bothering Ythan with, it's pretty trivial)

yeah, that's why I posted here instead of in WA&F, it's pretty easy to figure out your actual odds if you want to

I hope you know that when you consume alcohol you are consuming empty calories. Think about that next time you hit the bottle.

How are the calories empty?  I've never understood.  If they're there they're calories, right?  If not, they aren't.

It just seems like one of those 'scary stats' to scare you away, like Trans Fat.  I have not seen ONE item with trans fat in it EVAR, but they advertise its' absence like it was the plague!

Trans fats used to be all over the place, their absence is relatively recent. And, as you note, highly advertized.

I believe alcohol is referred to as empty calories because there's no protein, fiber, or really any other decent nutrients in there.  It's basically just carbs and calories.

Alcohol is just calories from a nutritional point of view.  We turn it to acetaldehyde which is shunted into gluconeogenesis via pyruvate, IIRC.
