Show Me Data

Your author claims "[a] Standford study says in 1995 most couples met through friends at about 33 percent." That represents a misreading or misinterpretation of the data provided in the study. Actually, most (the other 67 percent) met through other methods. Here's the lesson for it's a bad idea to publish an article written by someone who lacks the ability to understand the data set and research methods used in research studies.


Look at how many illegals are in the dangerous states.


Look at how many inbred white trash live in the top states.


Inbred because they’re afraid to leave their homes to get murdered and raped due to the overrun of illegals and blacks.
