my dad's job, before he retired, involved a lot of forecasting. i believe his actual title was Materials Management and Inventory Control Forecaster and Consultant (or something).

i'm told it involves a lot of statistics.

he used to give a conference every august. growing up, i sat in on it many times. i remember his bar graph at used an alka seltzer box and i remember he actually had a widget made for the class... he likes props.

as far as i can tell, the only other influence it may have had on me was that i buy replacements before i run out of the ones i have. it confuses me when people run out of toilet paper.
