For the next time you get into a rough and sweaty debate over various statistically-related topics while consuming liquified intoxicants, I hereby provide a list of handy “oh yeah?! ACTUALLY …. ” resources to defend your fortress of illogical logic.
Be careful when stepping in to refute someone’s claims, especially if they’re armed, drunk, or armed and drunk. Also, when someone invokes a statistic, pay close attention to the date of the statistic. VERY few statistical reports are (or can be) released within a year of the date on which they closed. It takes a while for nerds to crunch numbers down to a form which drunk idiots can understand.
