The chance of a Stray Dog

Take a bar.  Now, how would you calculate the probability you will pick up a Stray Dog if you are hanging out there?  Let’s take a look at the variables that might be relevant.  Your age, their age, your charm index, their state of innebriation, the time of day, special events ocurring in town, competition (cock blockers), etc.

It seems as though one could study the problem via linear regression.  There must be other methods and models too.

Let’s suppose you have worked out optimal times to be in the bar.  Suppose your main goal for being in the bar is to pick up a Stray Dog.  Think of the money you’d save drinking in the bar if you only went there during the optimal times for picking up that wonderful someone, and doing something else when the chances were not good.
