The average adult has one ovary and one testicle.


Also, if you have a baby, there is a 1 in 4 chance that it will come out Chinese.

You're stupider than a person who buys dog food made in China and expects no lead in it.

Don't call me a dude, only everyone else can call me that. Why don't you try doing something more productive, like spamming the Slipknot forums, or something? I know you love Slipknot.

Have I ever mentioned Slipknot on these forums?

That's the point. Statistics are a load of shit.

I don't get it. Is this supposed to be funny? Or are you trying to point out something that's blaringly obvious? (Plus, this doesn't even work unless you could find statistics that were actually skewed to imply these things.)

Statistics say that roughly half the people in the world are male, and half are female. Thus, the average person has one ovary and one testicle.


Statistics also say that around 25% of the world's population is Chinese. So probabilities say that there is a 1 in 4 chance of your child being Chinese.

So, three statisticians go hunting. They spot a deer. One shoots and misses to the right. Another shoots and misses to the left. The third one jumps up and triumphantly says "We got it!".

Yeah, it's been said before, but whatever. I'm tired, go away.

You're making it easy to make fun of you.

No dude, it's statistically true!

No, there is a 25% chance of a person being Chinese with that given data, not that if you have a kid there is a 25% chance of it popping out Chinese--unless there are four possible fathers and one of them is Chinese.

Also, the world is 51% female and 49% male. There goes that.

I'd bet quite a huge sum of money that mostly anyone else posting the exact thing I posted about Dain would have received approval..

You are receiving approval, just not from me. I still don't find the comment any funnier. But it's not like I was trying to start anything, I just thought it wasn't funny, then combined with "You're making it easy to make fun of you." I just felt the need.

I'd bet quite a huge sum of money that mostly anyone else posting the exact thing I posted about Dain would have received approval..I like how you gave your post less than one hour and only one nod of approval before deciding to (privately) bitch about a perceived lack of respect. Don't expect a chorus of cheers and slaps on the back every time you unexpectedly do something adequate. The idea was pretty good, but the execution was only decent (for instance, the insult would've been more biting without the hyperbole). And hell, while we're whining about how unfairly people are treated, I bet if anyone other than Dain posted the original piece, they would've at least been met with indifference. I feel like I've read one of those "statistics" before, but they're somewhat amusing.


No, there is a 25% chance of a person being Chinese...25% Chinese represent!

I didn't find them amusing at all, simply because...they don't make any kind of satirical sense..

PS what is this bullshit I hear about you being in China for 3 years?I'm currently in China. This is a trend that will continue for some time (though the jury's still out on whether or not I'll return to the states for the first part of next summer). What's so hard to understand?

Statistics never work. For example: when ever I untangle my headphones and pick them apart, one in each hand, the left one ALWAYS goes in my right hand and vice versa. That fucking sucks. I mean, statistically, every once i a while, they should end up right-/left headphone in right-/left hand right? Somewhere along 50% of the time. But nooo.
