    time series problems

    Can you show full sessions with input and the output. No offense but you're notoriously bad at describing what actually occurred. So start a fresh R session and show what worked. Then start a new fresh R session and show the thing that didn't work.

    explaing basic stats concepts to my cat

    To be fair - you can never study continuous mapping theorems enough

    explaing basic stats concepts to my cat

    Have you considered that maybe your cat knows more than you and those models are just too simple?

    Normalized Score v Z Score

    I think they mentioned that they did that particular transformation in their first post

    unused arguments

    Definitely. But usually you can see that "smart" quotes are used as they look a bit different. I think in this case they probably have a function in their global namespace named "c" which only takes two arguments.

    unused arguments

    Weird. I'm guessing at some point you defined a new function that you called "c". Does base::c("apple", "banana", "orange", "algo", "cream") give what you expect?

    Just for laughs!

    A similar joke but works too: What is an anagram for Banach-Tarski? Answer: Banach-Tarski Banach-Tarski

    Almost?

    Probability puzzle

    Yeah imagine A's time is uniform(0,1). B always gets a time of 2/3 and C always gets a time of 3/4. This meets the pairwise requirements as well but A wins overall 2/3 of the times.

    Probability puzzle

    I don't think there are enough details to have a single "correct" answer

    Is there a good tool for finding the best curve to fit my data?

    For a sample of data there is a coordinator empirical distribution. That would be "the" empirical distribution beyond discussed. It's the relevant empirical distribution. How much stats training do you have by the way?

    Back transformation of log transformed data

    That's a good point. But irrelevant because I don't think OP mentioned the IV should be normally distributed. They did say something about the DV being normally distributed - which is also not an assumption. We just need the error term to be normally distributed. And by "need" what I mean is...

    Is there a good tool for finding the best curve to fit my data?

    That just looks awful and the "What is different from other programs" section just makes it sound like the creator doesn't really understand statistics or at the very least is not good at explaining things. It sounds more like "let's try to convince people that don't know anything that we're...

    Is there a good tool for finding the best curve to fit my data?

    Sure! Essentially just using the empirical distribution as I suggested before. I just really still don't see why without a rigorous mathematical theoretical distribution to compare against they want to do something other than compare the mean or take a percentile ranking of some sort.
