Inferential statistics, alpha, sigma, std dev and motherfucking frequency ratios can die and burn in hell.

That about all I have to say.

yah i did that.

It feels like an evil being from the netherworld is forcing a long scepter inlaid with odd ancient latin/greek runic symbols through my brain, burning thier image into my mind with no sense of purpose or reality.

Welcome to my hell.

No, statistics can neither be proved right or wrong. They're just numbers. How you use them is what counts.

In both examples, the wrong stats are being used.

Then again I did have a stats professor use statistical analysis to prove that 2+2=5 in sufficient quantities of 2.

Stats are FUN! YAY for STATS! YAY!!!!!

dude, that's just not right. f'n sexism!
LOL ... you know it all goes back to sex right? Since men are more visually stimulated, we have the uncanny knack for better 3-dimensional thinking (it's so we can imagine nekkid females, then rotate them and manipulate them into different postions in our mind) maybe if you ladies practice that sort of thing it would help. :p

stats suck! I wish that 99% of them were gone and about 90% of them are wrong anyway.
