Statistics

Hi folks,
due to my heavy learning workload I only can afford very little time to blog.
But whats on my mind today is: Statistics (that topic is kind of related to what I'm supposed to be extensively studying at the moment.)

As rather boring at is can be as a subject at University as fun and interesting it can be if it's gathered and processed properly. Of course I do have a little example of that in form of my daily video!

What do you think about statistics? Have you had it in University or do you just like the statistics column in the newspaper?

  4. I kinda like statistics, it's pretty easy and fun to work with, although only when the assignments are well made. It can be pretty dull at times aswell, it depends on my mood tbh ^^

  5. Stats can be fun, but they're also a waiting headache! I guess it all depends on how you read into things...

  29. Interesting. Shows how quickly humans can bounce back from disaster. I wonder if the trend will continue into the future or if modern issues will force everyone poorer and sicker again.
