Statistics are not absolute truths but they can point you in the right direction with a degree of confidence it is so.

This takes quite a bit of work and the answer may not be what you expected.

However, there are many people who use statistics as an authority to back up their claims.

One person's truth can often incite debates, almost as if what a person witnesses has no meaning and that a person should not share what they've learnt. Sad but truth.

To err is human.
To forgive is divine.

To admit you've made a mistake, take your lumps and try to correct said mistake is part of being an adult.

If you should happen to travel by car with my Mom and act up in the backseat, do not idly take her threat of making you do jumping jacks on the shoulder of an Interstate highway.

My brother and I called her bluff once.

But she wasn't bluffing...

But that does make a great story at the family reunions.

There's also something to be said about walking about in a light rain near the woods.

The laundry detergents having been trying to capture that smell with some, but not complete, success.

There's something so... quiet and peaceful during a snowfall.

Thunder snow storms with lighting is strangely peaceful and scary at the same time.

Only if you are a child.

My middle name is my Grandfather's first name. Rarely do I hear my middle name used now but when I do I think of him.

Slavery was horrible enough, but another aspect of the horror was an attempt to strip your ancestry.

How many people take pride in being able to trace their ancestry to the American Revolution (DAR), the 1620 Pilgrims, or Confederate soldiers?

As if that's supposed to give them special privilege...

I was just making a comment and btw my middle name is also my grandfathers name.
I was also unaware that middle names were reason enough to play the race card regardless of what point you fail to make...

Which race card did I play there?

Did you think I played the ultimate Ace of Spades trump?
