They say the devil is in the details. Well, how about this detail? On Monday the world population will reach 6,666,666. Perhaps a few words on statistics might alleviate any hellish thoughts. “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics” Benjamin Disraeli “Not everything that can be counted counts; and not everything that counts can be counted.” George Gallup “One survey found that ten percent of Americans thought Joan of Arc was Noah's wife.” Rita Mae Brown “Figures don’t lie, but liars figure.” Mark Twain “A recent survey found that 46% of American men are uncomfortable eating a banana in public.” David Letterman Have a good weekend.
