    I like that Janet; she sticks to her principles. And she's probably right.
    The survey would have had to be narrowly focussed.
    Still a good joke though.

    Why thank you.

    I think so, too. It's also funny, but a different kind of funny, that intelligent people would not notice the joke part and pass it along pretending it's scientific fact, and then to demand that they need to provide no source or evidence for it. lol

    No, no, see, that's how it gets diluted.
    It's not 'I heard,' you say 'The report i read said...'
