From 44% down to 15% is quite a margin of error.

"Margin of error," hell.  That kind of discrepancy can only be explained as a willful misstatement -- or as my momma always used to call it, a lie.

I don't have links to the older issues, but they have pulled this "gross accidental overestimate" before.  When I see them publish numbers now, I immediately attribute the results to an estimate that they pulled out of their own butt.

Hopefully, all of these BS "facts" will come back to haunt them someday.  Sooner or later, their systematic malice has to come out in a court of law, right?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
