[R] bootstrap vs. resampleing

Confidence intervals depend on the sample size - the bigger the sample the smaller the interval. Subsampling (resampling without replacement) gives smaller samples and underestimates confidence (overestimates confidence interval size) of parameters calculated on the original sample.
