    OK, so your on this gameshow and the host Barry show you three doors.

    Behind 2 are Oxford A-Z Dictionaries
    Behind the third is a BRAND NEW CAR, (sorry monkey island fan)

    So you pick a door and Barry opens one of the two remaining doors, whichever one contains a dictionary. You are then asked if you'd like to switch or stay.

    The question is does it make a difference?

    It shouldnt matter, because now you have two doors, one with a car, one with a dictionary. you have a 50/50 chance of getting the car now.

    I'm afraid thats wrong, but the question is why?

    well, then i would say stay, because if you picked the dictionary orginally, he would just open the door and you would lose.

    P.S. but what if you want the dictionary?

    Wrong again because.

    If you picked the dictionary origanally and switch you win.

    If you picked the car originally and switch you lose.

    If you picked the other dictionary originally and switch you win.

    2/3 chance of winning by switching.

    Honey, what vaccine are you talking? I think you had a horrible nightmare or something. There's no vaccine. Maybe you're hallucinating...
