: What does Hind sight is 50/50 mean?

The usual expression is "Hindsight is 20/20." To find a recent discussion of it, go back one page and partway down. "Hindsight is 50/50" might be a clever way of saying that some people can't see what they should have done even when the event is past and all the consequences of their decision are known.
