Just a quick note today about statistics.

Last night, Anne and I watched a TV show about statistics. It was fascinating. We both laughed out loud as one example about the value of the statistical "average" was outlined. In Sweden, the average number of legs per Swede is 1.999 since some Swedes have either one or no legs. None have more than two legs. So the conclusion is that the typical Swede, with 2.0 legs, has more than the average number of legs for that country.
