Right. My head is about to implode... I need some help.

Say there are three doors. Behind two of the doors there are sacks of salt and behind the third door there is a Porche 911 GTI turbo 10.6 liter 1.000.000 horse power... convertable...

The door I eventually pick will yield me the prize behind it.

So, I pick a door. Before it's opened, the presenter opens a different door showing a sack of salt and asks me if I want to reconsider my choice of door.

WHY do my odds increase if I change doors?

I know they do, someone told me and tried to explain it to me... but alas, a couple of liters of beer, two joints and a lap dancer sort of foggied my mind.

Don't focus on why I was discussing odds at a lap dancing bar, stick to the question at hand...

Thanks.
