Re: Hoeffding Inequality
It's a subtle point. There is "cherry picking" if we fish for a sample that has certain properties after many trials, instead of having a sample that is fairly drawn from a fixed hypothesis.
Statements involving probability are tricky because they don't guarantee a particular outcome, just the likelihood of getting that outcome. Therefore, changing the game to allow more trials or different conditions would change the probabilities.
