Statistics Are Pretty Cool… And Pretty Terrifying (GALLERY)

What are statistics? Well, technically-speaking statistics are an easy way for super smart people who are good at math and science to completely freak us out. They do studies, gather statistical data and then present it to the world in the hopes of making or ruining someone’s day. Statistics also have the ability to make us think and realize that things could be worse and they probably already are. Thanks, statistics. Thanks a lot.
