Seth Roberts presents new findings on his "Arithmetic and Butter" experiment. Seth has a set of arithmetic problems that he solves every morning to measure his brain function.

He concluded that butter improves brain function, and suggested that we tend to underestimate the probability of something good happening when we experiment.
