Statistically speaking

Statistician J. Stuart Hunter

I’m in the thick of a Statistics project for an online class. It involves data on the number of pages in random statistics texts. It came with seven pages of instructions in size 12 font.

Boring. I’d like to quantify something like, how many men have ever gotten a woman to stop by yelling at her for a ride as she passes by on her bike? Now, there’s a real-world statistics project for you! Furthermore– what happens when there are complicating factors like,

1. She is 5 months pregnant
2. It is 84 degrees outside
3. She is biking uphill
4. (Oh, yeah.) She’s married? 

I e-mailed my professor. Hopefully next semester’s class will have a really awesome project to do.
