Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

kojima y7aysnv

Good evening gentlemen. Thank you for inviting me, and for including my paper at this conference. I will have to put it bluntly, even though some of you may not agree. Theories often die a hard death. HARUNA KOJIMA IS NOT SEXY !

Our current fanboy paradigm theory states that AKB48 member, singer, model, actress and “photobook” author Haruna Kojima has obtained the status of being a “sexy” lady.  I am here tonight to refute that claim, using inferential statistics, stochastic modeling and good old fashioned eye rubbing.

First let me lay out what is known as a “Null” hypothesis: My null hypothesis states that Miss Kojima is NOT sexy. Can you reject this hypothesis? Yes? … you say? Well, how about with 90% certainty? … what about with 95% certainty … what about with 99% certainty?

Would you still reject this hypothesis if it were a one-tailed test? … oh yeah? … what say you to a two-tailed test?

How may “degrees of freedom” does one need to reject this hypothesis? I ask you to calculate the “z” statistic for yourself if you find me in a TYPE II error.

Ok, time for the “Calculations” … please watch the slideshow … while I scribble …

Yes, when I calculate I will not forget to “carry the one” Kojima-san!

CONCLUSION: The Null Hypothesis CANNOT be rejected. In fact, I can’t remember what it was … statistics … something … something … it has actually been rather hard to concentrate on stats lately … forget my paper, I have a slide show instead …

I am also wishing Kojima-san a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY on April 19th.

Will this be her last birthday with AKB48?  Please enjoy my special Haruna Kojima “Retrospective” of some of her great modeling moments!

… talk about your stochastic modelling!

Kojima History: Remember the time Haruna dressed up like Johnny Depp (“Jack Kojima”) and tried to kiss Yuko? Here is Kojima-san as you have never seen her in an old “Danso” sketch from AKBINGO.

  3. “Paradime”? Your spell checker isn’t worth 19 cents.

    Never mind that – I’m still stumbling around the house, clutching my chest and calling to ‘Lizbeth as I struggle to firmly grasp the inflection points in your scholarly graphs https://dennysinnoh.files.wordpress.com/2015/04/one-tail-test-e1429295049353.jpg.

    • Thanks for the correction Bob. That is an embarrassing spelling error. I edited the correction.
      Note that a Cleveland Plain Dealer costs “a pair of dime” in the newspaper vending machine somewhere in history.

      I have actually been having some trouble word processing while using my current work computer (It is a HAL3000 model). It often corrects my writing when I do not want it too. I look back later and I see that a word has been changed without my noticing it. This most often occurs when I write in a conversational manner, use slang or make folksy-style comments. It will underline words in color and ask me if I want to do it. Sometimes I make a change to the computer’s “correction” but then the computer will change it back again!

      “Are you sure you want to do that David” it will say. I will type, “Yes HAL, I do.”

      “I cannot let you do that David” it will then reply, Which is perplexing because my name is NOT David.

      • Consider an upgrade to the HAL 9000, as it is reputed to be a more reliable computer. Dr. Frank Poole clears his icy throat and suggests that YMMV.
