I'm pretty sure twisting statistics to prove a point is a time honnored tradition for both acidamia since the greeks, and media since the printing press.

This is the best use of statistics I've ever seen.
And badger can do one if he thinks otherwise.

Percent, a part out of one hundred. Perkilo, a part of one thousand. X = 10, M = 1000.
What's the word for the 10ks ? Could you write it something like o/mk or would it be o/km? I'm sure one would mean 10,000 and the other would mean 990.

Silly saussage, I've been doing it the wrong way 'round.
Battered would be 2.43/km of me, rather than me being 2.43/km of him. What a silly saussage I am.

yes. but even we don't blithely switch from percentages to actual numbers.
Except Andrew Wakefield, probably.

mathematical tradition would require you to apply a conversion.

That would present information that we legally have to provide in far too clear a format and make us look bad.

This is a joke obviously,
I don't give a shit how the organisation looks, as long as my graphs look fabulous.

Dammit. I just asked google and the results were:

al can switch between percentage and numbers - 84.2 million
al can't switch between percentage and numbers - 229 million

What's that in percentages?

(, Fri 20 Apr 2012, 10:14, Reply)
36% of people believe that I can wilfully interchange between numbers and percentages.
Which is over a third, which is more than the number of people who voted for the tories, which means I'm perfectly at liberty to dismantle the NHS if I want to.

although try and make sure you remember where you put all the bits, eh?

I'm sorry, Al
