They say you can't argue with results, but what kind of defeatest attitude is that? If you stick with it, you can argue with ANYTHING.

Survivorship bias is just the beginning. We humans love stories, particularly about just one person. Alas, only systematic review of ALL the data is the only hope of seeing effects that are not random chance and seeing how big those effects are.

I'd rather see speeches about how it's okay not to be a massive success. "Statistically, kids, some of you won't ever make it significantly above the poverty line. But you'll keep going, and raise a family, and when you look back on your life in the end, you'll realize that at least you were a more likable person than Justin Bieber.

Such a low bar, and most of reddit will still fail to meet it.

Anyone can be wrong sometimes

Today the strip is sponsored by NeuronalMotion! NeuronalMotion is a young business we recently met who are growing rapidly. They accompany small and large businesses in their innovative projects thanks to their team of particularly passionate developers! We loved: their Atelier 27 project, which allows customers to customise their high-heels via 3D printing. Check them out!
