    84% of all statistics are made up.

    Where did you get these astounding numbers? I have a misspent youth in the computer industry. It is not possible to track some of this data. Most of those numbers are pure conjecture based on guesswork and rounding off of useless input.

    "Politicians use statistics like a drunk uses a light pole, to lean on instead of to illuminate." I can't remember who said that or if that is exactly how they said it.
