Great post. Thanks for sending me down a long Wiki rabbit hole about Abraham Wald and Operations Research.

No problem. I think the Wald/plane story is the best one ever about recognizing that what you don't see is as important as what you do.

FWIW: It's explained more clearly in many popular statistics books. Here's a link to a post citing the book where I first read the story.
