comment Sufficient statistics vs. Bayesian sufficient statistics
Your factorization is right. However, to comment on why the RHS does not depend on $\theta$: the formula is saying that $\theta$ provides no additional information beyond $t$.

comment Why is Euler's Gamma function the “best” extension of the factorial function to the reals?
Also, please see my first question -- I guess you know the answer!

Why is that the "correct generalization"?

comment What's an intuitive way to think about the determinant?
Great answer. We were taught the determinant as the generalized volume function in our algebra class.

comment Beta function derivation
I figured that the Beta function was invented as the normalization constant of the Beta distribution, but I guess it could have existed first. I wonder where it came from then?

comment How to determine if coin comes up heads more often than tails?
The coin is "almost surely" not fair. (There is a zero percent chance that it is fair.) I have added an answer if you want to know how unfair it is.

comment Beta function derivation
You're right. I'll fix my parametrization to match. I wonder why they defined the Beta distribution/function to require those "+1".
