Statistics are Like Prisoners…

I watched a video clip of a rogue pharmaceutical salesman today. He was confessing to manipulating side effects statistics when pitching new drugs to physicians. And he mentioned a really great quote on the subject that I’d like to share with you:

“Statistics are like prisoners. If you torture them long enough, they’ll tell you whatever you want to hear.”
