Back in the day (yesterday to be exact) I posted statistics from a website that figures out how many people there are in the US with your exact name based on statistical information (and, as we all know, according to Benjamin Disraeli (1804 – 1881) There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.
Anyway today I was plugging in names of various folks that I know, just to see what was returned (and also putting in people’s full names and people’s nicknames and just plugging around).
And then there’s my best buddy Crem, who I’ve been
trying to hoist off saying for years would be a great catch for a single woman. He’s cute and helpful and kids and dogs like him. All in all what most would consider to be a great catch. And anyone that has talked to a single woman lately knows that there don’t seem to be many good ones around (I hear they are all married or gay).
So I plugged in my best buddy’s name to see what would happen.
(So if he doesn’t exist — who was that helping me set up my computers the other day??? I’m so confused now).
My sister doesn’t exist either. What does it all mean??
- Statistics are useless and meaningless?
- I’m nuts?
- I spent too much time surfing the web?
