1. ### am i approximately chi-squared?

Is that a threat?
2. ### Standard deviation of an average of a number of results

I mean... They have the data. They can just compute the percentiles directly. No need for the standard deviation if that's the goal here.
3. ### am i approximately chi-squared?

Well you're not normal that's for sure
4. ### Help writing hypotheses!

And how do you think the formula for correlation is related to the earlier discussion? Please answer this question.
5. ### Help writing hypotheses!

What do you see is the relationship between what you quoted and the image you posted?
6. ### Help writing hypotheses!

@AngleWyrm There may have been an ad hominem but the concerns are real. And if we're being honest there are times where I feel like you're only contributing negatively to the discussion (because what you're contributing is sometimes objectively wrong and misleading to the OP). We appreciate...

8. ### Help writing hypotheses!

I never really liked the "Accept Ho" terminology. Change that to "Fail to reject Ho" and it's better.
9. ### Make me pretty (Density Plot)

change theme(axis.text=element_text(size=14)) to theme(axis.text.x = element_text(size=14), axis.text.y = element_blank())
10. ### Exact Poisson CI

As it should. But simulating from the likelihood isn't really defensible from a frequentist perspective. I'm being pedantic but if that's what you want to do it really makes the most sense to at least acknowledge you're taking a bayesian approach.
11. ### Exact Poisson CI

Could use the posterior distribution you'd get from a bayesian analysis for that I would think.
12. ### Exact Poisson CI

Can you provide a link to any source listing that as "exact"?
13. ### Pick until you get all black balls

Do you know about combinations and permutations?
14. ### Need help on a statistical algorithm.

It is. But like you said it must be iid and this ends up with a symmetric distribution which i don't think quite fits the needs here. Plus is a convolution really simpler than an if/else?
15. ### Need help on a statistical algorithm.

Indeed! I even suggested that algorithm in this post: http://www.talkstats.com/threads/need-help-on-a-statistical-algorithm.78447/post-233103
