    I think the statistics in the earlier "Female Perspective" thread were terrifying. I'm pretty sure they asked questions from the 150 stupidest women alive, but the majority voted for (not against):

    - That you should tell your girlfriend something a close friend told you in confidence

    - That she should know your entire sexual history once your serious (no, you shouldn't)

    - "Facebook Stalking". Stalking is for crazy people. "I like to think of myself as somewhere between stalker and just plain curious" HA HAH HA HA HA Here's that nutbag vegetarian psycho's profile, so feel free to write her back if you can: http://donq.com/#/profile/3491

    - You should be "teaching each other shared interests".

    - No clap dances at the strip club (only 19% are evn fine with you going in the first place)

    - "Manscaping": "If you don't trim down there, don't expect her to wax."....wanna BET?

    - You need 3 dates before a guy can invite you back to his place. You lie.

    I'm aware that most (i.e: all) of the females on this board don't fit most of these profiles (because they can read) but is this what single guys nowadays get to look forward to? This gives me even more reason to defend being married.

    Would be great if someone could confirm it, but the stat saying 10% of kids are not their "fathers" is pretty fucking scary.

    One in four people have a sexually transmitted disease. We also learned in freshman health that if every sucks on a different color jolly rancher and spits into a cup it represents how easy it is to get said STDs.

    Whenever I get behind those lotto scratching cocksuckers at the store? The disparity between the statistical likelihood of winning the lottery and getting struck by lightning makes me wish it were a requirement for them to have a lightning rod surgically implanted on top of their heads before they are allowed to play. If they want to win something so bad, why not play a game with better odds?

    I am old enough to remember when HIV/AIDS was going to be a pandemic that would sweep the world. I remember hearing numbers of somewhere around 1:7 were likely to contract and that eventually everyone would suffer. The folks who pointed out that the most likely candidates engaged in risky behavior (extreme promiscuity, prostitution, IV drug use) and the epidemic would be somewhat contained within those groups were usually met with a barrage of more statistics that pointed out the idea that the world was going to suffer with AIDS.

    Focus: 1 in 5 children are devoured by hungry velociraptors on their way to school.

    Alt. Focus: 94% of statistics are made up without any data to support their claims.

    5% of the time, "no" means "yes".

    Shaft CLAIMS he comes through ten times out of ten, but by investigation it seems closer to seven times out of ten.

    100% of straight guys that use lots of arm movements when dancing in clubs are on drugs....or from New Jersey.

    I had this long angry post all typed out. But instead I'll just say this: buying scratch offs is about buying entertainment and thrill. Everyone understands that they have a better chance of coming out with a loss instead of a gain.

    Condoms fail about 2% of the time.

    I think the results of that are active on this message board.

    "The average person swallows eight spiders per year."

    I know it's supposedly false, but shit! I can handle a lot but get me around spiders and I turn into a hysterical, shrieking little bitch.

    90% of all people are complete assholes, and another 5% are marginal at best.
