Bullshit Statistics


"Oh, people can come up with statistics to prove anything, Kent. 14% of people know that." ~ Homer Jay Simpson has a nice list of the 6 most frequently quoted bullshit statistics.  The six are:

  • You Accidentally Swallow About 8 Spiders a Year
  • You Only Use 10% of Your Brain
  • Men Think About Sex Every Seven Seconds
  • Spousal Abuse Skyrockets on Super Bowl Sunday
  • You Must Wait 30 Minutes After Eating Before Swimming
  • Christmas Causes Suicide

Only fools believe that men think about sex every 7 seconds.  I mean, who can make it that long?
