Default Re: Stats vs Stats :)

I worked in stats for years and the only time stats ever lied was when I messed up. It's not the poor old numbers' and graphs' fault that manipulative people spin them in illogical (but superficially convincing) ways.

If you don't believe stats quoted by news outlets or people wearing suits* or pearls and you'll be fine.

* Unless it's a Mr Bean type brown suit.
