    For the more academically minded or at least, if you don't know what p values are, this is probably a bit complicated. But it's not an indepth statistical article that requires reading a lot of maths or equations.

    If I'm understanding the figures in another paper correctly (the one directly cited by that passage is pay-to-read), the probability of a false-alarm with a p-value of 0.10 is around 44%.
