G. T. Hushion practiced law part time as a research attorney from 1990 - 2010. He is also a forensic historian with particular interest in pi and geometric probability and their tortuous journey through the French Revolution. This study has consumed approximately 50,000 hours over 27 years. He has no interest in gambling other than these scientific circumstances. Gaming trials have been used to model randomness and explore pi. Prior to law school, he was a journalist and investigative reporter with a special interest in the administration of California’s tidelands.
His other interests include the OK Corral gunfight, the Chumash Painted Cave, and the reality of Sasquatch.
The Western Lawmen and Outlaws Association has characterized his work with the OK Corral as one of the most intensive investigations of the gunfight ever undertaken. His theory of the event is based on original eyewitness testimony and compelling admissible evidence as originally recorded by a Tombstone court stenographer. His conclusions are quite opposite the presentations of movies and the popular myth. He has filmed it twice with detailed analysis and his work has been shown on public television. True West Magazine characterized his presentation and interpretation as credible.
His work with the Chumash Painted Cave identifies it as a map of the area's food resources rather than inexplicable religious signs.
Two years before Dr. Melba Ketchum presented her genome study of Sasquatch DNA and concluded the species was 13,000 years old, Tim had communicated the same conclusion to BFRO and their historian, noted wildlife biologist Dr, Bindernagel. Tim's work obviously does not include Dr. Ketchum's DNA study but is rather based on wide ranging and compelling circumstantial evidence that the species is 13,000 years old.
(His work with Sasquatch grew out of the work with the Painted Cave and an incident of inexplicable rock throwing at the Cave. He has approximately 2,000 bookmarks on the subject with virtually all of them pointing to the effect of extended consumption of excess amino acid growth hormones without balance of the other necessary amino acids. This appears as the circumstance of First Nation people being trapped by volcanic activity on the Eastern slopes of the Cascade range 13,000 years ago. The slopes have the largest and tastiest pine nuts. There would have been many tribal groups of young, strong and healthy people gathering pine nuts during harvest season. There was a chain of massive volcanic explosions 13,000 years ago along the Cascade chain. The Glacier Peak explosion was one of the largest and was at least 5 times more powerful than the 1981 Mt. St. Helen's eruption. During this period of volcanic activity, while many groups would have been killed quickly, many would also survive. Many such survival groups would be first trapped for weeks by the volcano, then for months by mountain winter weather. They would have had almost nothing to eat but pine nuts, the inner bark of the pine tree and foxfire fungi which is extensively present around pine tree root systems. Uniquely, all of these have an enormous imbalances of amino acid growth hormones. The effect of extended consumption of growth hormone with dietary imbalance of the other essential amino acids has demonstrably significant genetic impact on DNA. Dramatically, the effects are enhanced and multiplied in the presence of nitrogen and sulfur. These chemicals would have been well provided by the volcanic explosion. In addition, there was one other available food: the abundant larvae of the pine beetle. It not only also has excess quantities of glutamate, but is unique in all the animal kingdom for the bacteria in its larvae systems: ...they can exchange DNA with a plant! The physical description of Sasquatch from thousands of reports matches the theoretical expected results. After months of such diet, new born babies would, by all reasonable expectations, arrive big, muscular and hairy ...with these and other significantly modified genetic structures!).
In 2004, the Statistical Laboratory at University California Santa Barbara tested him with 100 flips of a coin. He successfully predicted and found a precise .04166.... flat bet advantage. The Lab then repeated the experiment with 100 “coin flips” from a random number generator. Again he successfully predicted and found a precise .04166.... flat bet advantage.
The experiment was soon repeated with a coin and a reporter. The coins broke dead even despite the prediction. This appears to match the geometry of the underlying prediction (two of three poles of a pi-angle) and a balloon theory of geometric probability ...within geometric probability ...within geometric probability, etc.. Further research obviously awaits this phenomenon.
On March 14, 2006, the Buffalo Evening News published an article in which their reporter tested him with a random number generator. He successfully predicted the precise random outcomes of electronic card turnovers with a .16666 flat-bet advantage.
Five years ago, a Chicago "physicist" attempted to confirm these matters with a random number generator but failed. Unfortunately, the physicist used a pseudo random number generator rather than a true random number generator and couldn't appreciate the difference. He also didn't understand that pseudo RNGs give initial favorable results ...followed by long run failure as the algorithm simply repeats itself. That is exactly what should have been expected. Instead of understanding this, he blamed the pi-odds theory.
The difference between pseudo and true RNG's is distinguished herein. The results with a true random number generator are explosive (see: What's Crracking)!
In the Spring of 2017, Santa Barbara's Independent weekly newspaper initiated a series of experiments with dice using this theory of geometric probability. Two sessions have been completed and more are to follow. To date, including the original throws of this study, 6,000 dice throws have delivered a predictable flat bet advantage closely approaching the predicted .16666.... .
