Most assuredly. Whenever I'm wrong I'll admit it. It's not a perfect world but we do our best.
By the way, starting over when you find an error is a must, else you're living in a fantasy world.

Shortly I'll present a new format.
All formulas are the same, but I'll present the full "Cherry Tree",
that is all the exacta combinations I'm categorizing.

Then I'll present the "Picked Cherries"


Up through 1000 races, I may pick some new Cherries and throw away others.
After 1000 races perhaps I'll find some cherries worth keeping.

Note to self. Simplifying the play.
Favorite = a
Co-Favorite =b
"All", as shown in my exacta board.
A and B established by the first indication zero minuets to post.

0 nay: a/all and b/all
1 nay: all/a
3 nay: b/all
3 yea: all/a

I mentioned the same thing to Einstein one day. He told me i need not be concerned. Just follow the yellow brick road and pull back the curtain.

Perhaps to determine the scope or curvature of a line in 3d. Not just x and y but x y and z as represented in a 3d cube, or perhaps infinity in some other 3 d shape, to name just a few.. you never can tell what the results will lead you to. Enjoy
