A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent.

Teenage boys, who are often stereotyped as the biggest gamers, now lag far behind their older female counterparts, making up just 17 percent of the gaming demographic. (x)

## 25 U.S. States Have Active KKK Terrorist Groups. If they are not terrorist groups, what would you call them?

All these KKK and skinhead groups out here and people label the #blacklivesmatter movement a terrorist group? That’s really disgusting.

We need to work on destroying those. There should be no hate. The only reason these groups exist is because they start brainwashing from birth. If no one told you who to hate we would have peace on earth. #Love it!

Compilation of my Psychological Statistics notes ✌🏼

Some ways that statistics can lie to you without ever falsifying their data:

• Reframing a small absolute difference as a large relative difference. For example, it’s technically correct to describe an increase from 0.01% to 0.04% as a 300% increase - but is a +0.03% bump what you’d assume to be the case if you heard the phrase “300% increase”?
• Using one type of average while implying that you’re talking about a different type of average. For example, if a company has nine employees who make \$10/hour and one manager who makes \$60/hour, you can take the mean average and state with technical truthfulness that the average wage is \$15/hour, even though no actual person makes that.
• Reporting accuracy in terms of the absence of false negatives without considering the presence of false positives. A test that returns a positive result 95% of the time when what it’s looking for is present may sound reasonably accurate - but what if I told you that it also returns a positive result 30% of the time when what it’s looking for isn’t present?

Water has finally become more popular in the US than soda for the first time in 2 decades. In 1998, Americans were drinking a yearly average of 54 gallons of soda compared to 42 gallons of water. By 2013, the average was 44 gallons of soda vs 58 gallons of water, and soda consumption has been in decline every year since. Source Source 2

September 19  I haven’t posted for a while. I felt really lazy but here I am trying to get back on the track. Here are my notes for Statistics. It is the first time I used this style of note-taking and I have to admit that I love how it went.

You’d have to work fewer than 10 hours a week to be as productive as a 40-hour worker in 1950. The number of weekly hours needed for workers to equal a 1950s level of output has consistently declined by at least half an hour per year ever since - so even if you work 23 hours a week, you’re still more productive than you would have been in 1975.

Women are much safer drivers than men. Studies have shown that since 1975, accidents involving female drivers have resulted in less than half the fatalities than accidents involving male drivers. Source
