As a followup to my last post, this cracked me up. And kinda made me cry.
In the meantime, I had to read a chapter of Freakonomics for a class. I read this quite a while ago for my reading group and found it... problematic. No, really, that's being diplomatic. I really didn't like it. I thought it was silly. Rereading it with a better grasp on statistics did not help it. I hated it. HATED it.
