There's a high probability that people with a stats background will enjoy this link

Conditional probability, hands down. This is a subtle piece of business and it pervades everything. I taught stats for two semesters at the local community college and am now convinced that statistics should NOT be required for any degree where the students are not required to take a couple of stats classes to gain mastery over the basics. Exposure classes to stats, I think, give students a false sense of confidence.
Pretty much no one believes the solution to the Monty Hall problem upon initial hearing. And to write down the math behind it takes real work. This is a very simple stats problem, also, and the implications are huge.
