Isn’t it interesting the stats that people with no scientific background throw around?
Isn’t it interesting the stats that people with a scientific background throw around?
Are we going to play which sentence is not like the other? Hint: One word is different.
People with no degrees shout 1/10 people die from such and such a drug. People with degrees shout 1/1,000,000 people die from such and such a drug. Yet they don’t give any reason or evidence or anything to back it up. They just “heard” it and they are right. The Boogeyman could have posted the stats online for all anyone knows and yet gullible fools, degree or no degree, believe and repeat. Soon it becomes so called fact, until it doesn’t.
Isn’t it interesting how the stats say everyone and their dog is a bestseller?
Isn’t it interesting how the stats say you’ll make $5673.88 a day and quit your day job?
What? That doesn’t interest you? I swear the stats are true. I read them on the Internet in multiple places. That right there makes me an expert. You need proof? Okay, no problem. 8/10 people will make $5673.88 a day online if they try. 9/10 authors will become bestsellers if they put out a book. See? Now you have to believe me. The stats are out there and they don’t lie.
Isn’t it interesting how the stats say that movie was great?
Isn’t it interesting how the stats say that movie sucked?
Oh, two words different in that sentence. Or one different and one not there. Are we still playing that game? Where’s Waldo when you need him.
Recently 1/10 critics declared that movie as awful while 8/10 of them declared this movie as great. The stats don’t lie, it has to be true. Since when did opinions become stats? I guess since the creation of the Internet. I am allowed to answer my own questions, right? Can I get some stats on that? Some actually try and pass opinions of stick up their bum reviewers off as stats. I suppose at least they all have reasons as to why they hated it and you can see their rant on why, unlike the first example. You’d think people wouldn’t get stats and opinions mixed up. That’s the school system for you.
Make any stats up today? Got any more examples to add? Did you believe my make $5673.88 a day online stats? If so, I have a bridge I can sell you. It has a toll booth that brings in millions a day. The stats on it don’t lie.
Enjoy life, forget the strife.
