Andy, your mastery of statistics is astounding.

Haha, check out the article this is from - "relationship between socialism and atheltic performance"! Oh dear...

So we should reject homosexuals so we can win more gold medals?
Even by Andy's low standards this is a lame argument.
3/12/2010 11:35:27 AM
Yeah, like Wilt Chamberlain

Because it totally has nothign to do with the fact that there's roughly a tenth of the population altogether that's gay, meaning a smaller proportion in all walks to begin with. And totally, totally nothing to do with the fact that many homosexuals in professional sports fear coming out for fear of either harm or losing their livlihood as a result? Or in the case of less mainstream sports, losing sponsorship?
No, nothing to do with that AT ALL.

Andy abuses statistics so often there's an article about it at RationalWiki:
As you can see in the article, the National Academy of Sciences has commented on Andy's knowledge of statistics:
"The issues raised by Mr. Schlafly are neither obscure nor subtle, but are part of everyday statistical analysis at a level too elementary to need rehearsal in the pages of PNAS."

@ 1131172: "says the dude who would get his ass kicked by Nong Tum"
I'm pretty sure a newborn kitten could wipe the floor with him

Hey there, Andy, just stopped by to chime in about how horribly wrong you are yet again.
Not much else to say to a man like you.
3/12/2010 12:00:48 PM
Maquissar, it's not that complicated. If we were to pick out from a given population one athlete out of every 1000 people, then we would have more heteosexual people being athletes than gay people. Much like if we picked out a percentage from right handed and left handed people. The group of right handed people is far larger than left handed people, so you would have more right handed people to be athletes. None of this has anything to do whatsoever with a "misguided value system".
3/12/2010 12:04:28 PM
Andy, you are seriously unhinged from reality by your complete insanity. Your mere existence amazes me.
3/12/2010 12:15:56 PM
This guy hasn't watched figure skating before has he?
3/12/2010 12:24:58 PM
3/12/2010 12:36:28 PM
Yeah, that's why Saudi Arabia fucking rules the Olmypics -- no faggot athletes!

Any time I read something like this from him, I can't get Sir Bedivere's voice out of my head saying "...and that is how we know the Earth to be banana-shaped."
3/12/2010 12:39:22 PM
Bedivere was a stone genius next to Andy Shitfly.
"Explain again how sheeps' bladders may be employed to prevent earthquakes."

Actually the percentage of adult people in traditional relationships is high when compared to those "misled by the homosexual agenda". Being an athlete has nothing to do with it.
Also, I swear Andy is the next Ted Haggard.

And that's why Canada broke its medal count record in Vancouver and wound up in the top three in medals standings.
Wait, this is a response to a debate about how "Canada embarrasses itself at Olympics"?
You guys really are insane, aren't you? I mean, I was hoping it was a joke, but...
3/12/2010 1:08:26 PM
Wow, that whole debate is comedy gold. The end is awesome. They take a statistic that says the polar opposite of what they say and use it to prove their own hypothesis.
This physically hurt me.
3/12/2010 1:20:45 PM
Okay, let's forget all of the unfounded assertions and blatant inaccuracies, let's forget that everything you ever say comes directly from your ass, let's forget your ridiculous slippery slope and your homosexual conspiracy nonsense. Are you claiming that winning medals is more important than human rights? I'd rather my country take dead last in every Olympic game for the rest of time than oppress a significant portion of the population. Being a great nation isn't about who can win a hockey game or who can swim the fastest butterfly it's about the standard of living in that nation. Medals are just decoration.
3/12/2010 1:25:44 PM
Andy, I have a hard time believing you can competently teach anything with your head that far up your own ass.
3/12/2010 1:29:24 PM
Andy belongs in an institution and Phyllys belongs in prison for what she did to the poor kid.
3/12/2010 2:01:07 PM
Call my gaydar faulty, but I reckon some of those female Canadian hockey players that won the gold medal weren't entirely heterosexual.
3/12/2010 2:03:40 PM
That's because of statistics. Most people are straight, so it makes sense that most athletes, let alone record-breaking athletes, would be straight.
