I like statistics, but I must admit, I’ve got to be careful with how I use them. Like the old story I read about a 97-year-old man, who entered an insurance office and applied for a life insurance policy.
He received word later that his application had been turned down. Angry, he hurried over to the firm’s office and told them, “You folks are making a big mistake! If you look over your statistics, you’ll find that mighty few men die after they’re 97.”
