What I'm doing with my life

Bascially, I find statistics fascinating even though I  am hopeless at it. I love that you can plot correlation with such specific accuracy.

I love this, too, 'Correlation does not imply causality.' This is something we should all think about for a couple of years. Correlation does not imply causality. This was the story of my life as a religious person: constantly, constantly, constantly implying causation from correlation. It is the basis of every sermon I have ever heard. Correlation does not imply causation.

Statistics is nice because it gives you information and requires you to give it meaning. This Scree Plot shows that two components of a survey account for almost 67% of the variance in my data set. I think.
