All sounds a bit scary mary to me.

If you get stuck or loose your thread, try spinning round frantically on the spot a few times. It will distract your audience so they can't remember where you were either.

Works every time, I know. :bye:

Me to. In school I was one of the 65% who grasped the subject, however the other 55% of my class had no idea

you mean theres actual subjects for statistics and this was compulsory in school?!! well thank god i didnt have to do it!!

anyone familiar with the computer programme spss? i think thats where all those fancy phrases come from. and between then and now i remember that mean is just a fancy term for average. why the fook cant they be normal and just say average?

if all else fails i may take off my top tho i dont think it will impress much as its two ladies grading me. if it were a man ....

I didn't do it either in school - thank God, cos I remember seeing a Higer Statistics exam paper and it looked impossible!

When I was in 2nd year at uni we had to do a subject called Bio-statistics and it was sooooo boring! I never understood it.
