Pet Peeve #1

I really fucking hate advertisements that spout meaningless statistics. Like, not just that the statistics are dumb, but that they actually literally mean nothing.

It actually made me develop a twitch to be standing on a tube platform the other day surrounded by posters declaring:

"Londoners are 30% more likely to [fucking hate meaningless statistics?]!"*

30% more likely than who??!?!!!

*In case you care about the specifics, it was something like "possess smart phones" and was an ad for The New Statesman.
