Average IQ of any American is roughly equal to his/her age.

I knew my crapper was out to get me.

• In 1998, more Americans were injured by their toilet (48,964) than while using a hammer (42,426).

Thats a relief.
I thought it was just me.

Toliet related injuries? I know I've come close to a stroke trying to crap - but does that count? What other injuries would be considered?
 
2002-03-04 11:44:44 AM
50% of people are below average

Ah...your tax dollars at work.

Buttermilk?!

I think there's only 7 or 8 people drinking the nation's supply of buttermilk. I know someone else drank my portion anyway.

Talk about useless facts. Take a straight-up headcount and be done with it. It would save a whole lot of money.

kreskin, lol

I had a toilet aneurysm yesterday

No way in hell 40 percent of Americans read a book in 1999. Are that many Americans even literate?
 
2002-03-04 11:47:52 AM
This is just sad:
1990 rank 1999 rank
New Mexico 17,471 47 21,097 48
We are below Arkansas :-0

"There were more married women than married men in the U.S.," he said, laughing. "It turns out that widows were more likely to report they were still married than widowers, and women in ambiguous relationships were more likely to report they were married. I thought that was kind of cute."
Yeah, isn't it cute when women are deluded? >:D

Hey, Deltau922, when you quibble over the definition of sex, do you think that your definition of "a book" is the same as that of those who were surveyed? "Sure, I read TV Guide all of the time."

I feel this enourmous pressure. I really want to win that car...

"Average IQ of any American is roughly equal to his/her age."

Must be all those Canadian immigrants pulling down the average.

"It's very important that data like this is pulled together in one place," said Steven S. Ross, an expert in statistics and an associate professor at the Columbia Journalism School. "It's very useful."

Yeah, it's very useful when stats guys like you need something to think about while whackin' off.
 
2002-03-04 11:52:53 AM
In other news, 50% of all toilet accidents are never reported. They simply get flushed.
 
2002-03-04 11:52:59 AM
The average IQ of a 20 year old is 20???? MAN!! No wonder this country is in deep shiat.
 
2002-03-04 11:56:08 AM
"how many gallons of coffee each person drank that year (25.7)" - bah, that's probably my monthly consumption. Which reminds me, it's monday and I'm thirsty...
 
2002-03-04 11:57:09 AM
This is not livening up my Monday.

But a Photoshop thread would.
 
2002-03-04 11:57:37 AM
Are those links Farked on that site ?

One stat never reported: 100 % of Census takers failed to ask me about any of this so 100 % of their Census is wrong ....

I'm not paying you to find cute there Jocko. I want stats-cold hard stats. Now get back into your little government cubicle and get to work.

Average IQ of any Canadian is roughly equal to the outdoor air temp. in northern Canada.

I'm not surprised at the number of people who were injured by their toilets. I AM surprised at the number of people who would admit to it!
 
2002-03-04 12:06:08 PM
Percentage of Americans that understand 'statistics': Purple
 
2002-03-04 12:08:57 PM
Stats proof that almost all stats are wrong
 
2002-03-04 12:09:28 PM
More women were maried than men?

I wonder if they were really married or it just felt like it.
 
2002-03-04 12:15:35 PM
Averages make me wonder sometimes. I don't drink coffee at all which means someone else is drinking 51.4 gallons a year to make up for me. But accidents on the toilet? What are they doing? Grunting so hard they fall off and have to clean the mess off the wall?
 
2002-03-04 12:16:23 PM
Fb had a toilet related injury.

Someone slammed the lid down while he was getting a drink.
 
2002-03-04 12:18:39 PM
More women married than men?

Did they only count Utah?

I think I know where the buttermilk went,

Baptist Church Fried Chicken Wings

Recipe courtesy of Emeril Lagasse

Oil, for deep frying
1/2 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons Creole spice (Essence)
2 cups flour
1 pound chicken wings
Potato salad, for serving
Parsley sprigs, for garnish
In a deep fryer or high-sided skillet heat oil to 360 degrees F.

In a mixing bowl combine buttermilk, 1 tablespoon Creole spice and 1/2 cup flour; mix well to make a paste. Season remaining flour with remaining Creole spice. Dip wings, one at a time, into batter, allowing excess to drip off. Dredge in seasoned flour. Fry immediately in hot oil, 6 to 8 minutes, moving and turning pieces frequently with long tongs. Drain on paper towels. Do this in batches. If wings are large, remove with tongs, drain, transfer to a baking sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degrees F until very crispy, about 10 minutes. Serve with potato salad garnished with parsley sprigs.

On behalf of Canadians everywhere, I'd like to apologize for Joedesi - people from Dundas, Ontario aren't known for their tact or knowledge of the outside world.

Each American consumed an average of .3 gallons of buttermilk and 118 pounds of red meat in 1999.

Yikes. That's an average of 1/3 lb of red meat consumed per day. I like red meat as much as the next person but not enough to eat that much. Beef lobbyists must be earning their keep.

Maybe those toilet related injuries are a result of people trying to empty their colon.
 
2002-03-04 12:34:43 PM
How can you get injured by a toilet? Thats like being beaten by a computer

Soooo, those PETA and Vegsource people are liars, they really do eat meat. Hypocrites.

Nice one, Ironbar. My keyboard is now eating my lunch.

"Each American consumed an average of .3 gallons of buttermilk and 118 pounds of red meat in 1999."

HUH? That's an average of 36oz of red meat per week. An average? Can that be?
 
2002-03-04 12:40:42 PM
1/3 pound of beef a day seems awfuly high. They must take the total amount of beef produced in the US, subtract the exports, add the imports, and divide by 280 million, or something.
I want to know who's eating all my beef. I'll trade them my buttermilk.
 
2002-03-04 12:47:02 PM

Well I guess I'm not an american cause I had absolutely no buttermilk or red meat in 99
 
2002-03-04 12:56:15 PM

Each American spent at least 2 hours in 1999 partaking in Cock and Ball Torture

more americans use toilets than hammers.. so the odds are in the toilets favor to get you...

As a canadian babe I'd like to tell Mayo boy to get bent.
 
2002-03-04 12:59:53 PM
Meat is murder.
 
2002-03-04 01:01:03 PM
Buttermilk is assault.
 
2002-03-04 01:01:15 PM
I skewed the stats. Last year I had an accident with a toilet while on the hammer. Wait, that's not it....
 
2002-03-04 01:02:10 PM
Statistics show that Americans who think they are smarter than Canadians have their heads up their asses.
 
2002-03-04 01:03:43 PM
Average hours per Farker spent on last year, 2,567,098
 
2002-03-04 01:03:50 PM
Rowdy Rodger: Maybe one thing that makes SOME Americans smarter than Canadians is that SOME Americans realize Canada is in America too.

Just a thought.
 
2002-03-04 01:05:32 PM
Damnit...

Average hours per Farker spent on last year, 2,567,098

Average time Rabb spent on this post without it being funny, 5 minutes

Rosalea: I think I ate your share of the meat, I think cliche kitty got into the buttermilk though.
