The thread had factual numbers!
No opinions, no perceptions, sheer numbers!

Why was it deleted then? :roll:

I think the topic had a very high chance of offending a number of people. I wasn't the only who deleted it, but only because someone else beat me to it. If you want to start up nationalistic comparisons, I recommend you find some other forum to do it in.

Yep, hard to argue with that. Just because it's factual, doesn't mean it's nice.

For that matter, I don't recall that it was particularly factual: I just don't want to argue about it here.

wohh wohh.. slow down guys!

I didnt mean to offend anyone.

If that was the case it could have had the analysis of those numbers too!

Is it so difficult to accept what is true?

Sometime back I was following a thread about evolution and religion... and everyone jotted in their thoughts without considering at the thread as "NOT SO NICE" or "POTENTIALLY NOT LIKABLE!"

Anyways you guys are the bosses here....

Max: Can you let me know which of those facts were wrong?

I didn't see the thread in question. But I often find that already the decision of which numbers to show and which to omit can be highly subjective.

Like they say, there's lies, damn lies, and statistics.

Isn't there any saying which say's something like:

There's interpretation, there's perception and then there's down right bias!

There is a saying that goes something like: "If it has meaning or is not drivel, it doesn't belong in Meaningless Drivel."
