A Tweet That Deserves a Post
@hotdogsladies (Merlin Mann) fired off an entertaining tweet today.

"96.3% of college-educated Americans will be wooed by any hard-to-prove statistic that defies conventional wisdom."

I got a kick out of it and immediately IMed two of my (college educated) friends. Their responses were as follows.

Person A:
I think that is almost certainly true.

This response was especially entertaining, as in agreeing with it, it also proved it! The next person took a particularly different approach, but to equal comedic effect.

Person B:
really??
give me an example
are there any sited?

Now this person seemed to only half buy into it. They wanted proof! Does this mean they are one of the remaining 3.7%?

=P
