Two reasons why choice of beverage could inspire the next big discovery in statistics:
1. Fischer’s implementation of randomization and the first description of the “Null Hypothesis” through tea and milk (The Lady Tasting Tea experiment)
2. Gosset’s discovery of the student’s t inspired by the art of brewing beer (disguised under the name of student, Gosset worked at Guinness and published several articles in biometrika)
How about the lemonade business? Could it possibly inspire a new statistical innovation? Lemonade recipes are welcomed!
