Now that's funny!

I still remember when a tv host try to set aside statistical evidence to a university teacher telling him "we can say whatever we want with stats" and the teacher lecturing him about basic science 101, telling him it's completely false!

Stats are science, it's not an art at all, if you think so, it might be time that you get some more education.

The only way stats can "lie" is by using a non-proper methodology and we can't evaluate his study yet.
