    Let's pick a door..

    Say that you're on a game show with a chance to win a car.

    There are three doors. Behind one of the doors, is the new car.

    The host asks you to pick a door.

    You do and point to it.

    The host walks up to one of the doors you didn't pick and opens it. Behind that door is a pile of sand.

    He asks if you want to change your choice from the two doors left.

    Should you change your choice to the other door?

    Should you? No. You're odds just went from 33% to 50% that you were right the first time.

    Change the door There may only be 2 doors now but you still picked while the odds were 1 in 3, now you can pick at 1 in 2

    Take the sand... it does not depreciate like a car... or cost rego and insurance each year... so you actually are saving money.
