I have a dilemma. I want to say hi but if my department sees me as a critical value then they probably wouldn't kick me out even if I mess up...

Now I like to be in that position. Mess up big time and still be OK.

Welcome Miss Stats,

In null-hypothesis testing, a critical value must be exceeded in order for the the null hypothesis to be rejected. So becoming a critical values sucks, as you are at the border but not yet significant!
I hope this makes me significant. :p

I would urge you however to leave the null-hypothesis testing behind, and approach us from a more information theoretic point of view. How much can we learn from you and you from us?

Anyway, welcome to the forum and watch out for the raptors.

Happy Posting,

Ah! I love outliers! They make analysis more interesting (& sometimes brings a lot of pain too). Stats as a whole would be pretty dry without outliers, given that the purpose of statistics/modelling is to reduce noise!
