This Blog's History: Understanding Statistics

This Friday in This Blog's History I bring back to you a post discussing the importance of understanding statistics before reporting said statistics.  We see statistics thrown at us left and right every day through the internet, radio, TV, magazines, friends, teachers, parents, etc.  However, without understanding the science behind the statistics, numbers can be misused and twisted to prove an ideological point.  Don't let this happen.  Take time to understand the science behind the statistics.  Otherwise you might misrepresent the data and come across as an idiot and no one wants that!  :-)

Colder than Mars...Really?!?!?!
