Five fourths of Americans don’t understand fractions

Regarding my recent post, statistics on statistics, I need more votes. Granted the question is absurd, however I am planning a legitimate analysis of the data and there are, I believe, some potentially interesting conclusions to be drawn therein.  In the scientific world, statistics are regarded as mathematical facts; their purpose being the formulation and validation of assumptions that could not otherwise be ‘proven’ even by an inexhaustable amount of empirical data.  In the commercial world however, statistics play a  very different role and are interpreted with an equally distinct degree of rigor.  I don’t want to spoil the punch line but it promises to resemble something like what you see when you stand in between two mirrors.  So click on the link above and send some votes this way please.
