A Collecting We Don't Because We Won't!

Did you think we'd go all hoarders today? Bah, been there done that at our bay. Plus collecting they do. If you can call it that at your zoo. Instead we'll go input. Count the toes on your foot.

A data collecting.
Can't start neglecting.
Let's pretend.
Later we can amend.

Isn't this nifty.
We can be shifty.
Pull it from our ass.
We'll fool any mass.

90% of this.
It brings bliss.
52% of that.
It melts fat.

The data is there.
Like a head of hair.
Lots to see.
Manufactured by me.

Counting and collecting?
Bah, that involves selecting.
Just get it off the internet.
Facebook is the place they all vent.

Why create new?
Go tried and true.
Or tried and fake.
But shhh don't partake.

Just go with the flow.
We're really in the know.
Nod and agree.
Our data comes free.

We held no beta.
We just got our data.
Can't you accept that?
76% say yes with no spat.

Old data works.
It has perks.
Done 50 years ago.
2.5 kids were in the know.

Can't gather new.
So just shoo.
Your data doesn't count.
You'll ruin our amount.

Don't you love stats pulled from an ass? Put them on the internet and they are believed by many a lad and lass. Don't you love using old data to create something new? Like data 50 years ago is, usually, ever relevant to today's view. Want new data one has to put in the work and not be a lazy jerk. That is the end of my data sass. Now you can go back to collecting data on my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  3. I've always wondered about that poor .5 kid...
    Most data is slanted. Poll the right people and you'll get the answer you want.

  6. My good friend came over yesterday and I showed her a video on my oldest son's Facebook. She thought it was my son doing the video and would not be convinced of otherwise (it was just one of those funny types of videos that go around the internet, but she doesn't go online so it's a new concept to her). I was surprised because she's not usually gullible. Goes to show though, not everyone sees through the stats/internet/junk. Some take it to heart.

  8. Politicians are really adept at making up -- or at least "fudging" -- statistics to "prove" their points. And by politicians, I mean most of them, not just our oh-so-obvious Liar-in-Chief.

  9. Anything can be said for one's advantage
    so we must be careful with what we believe
    with all the information we receive.

  15. Manipulating data to get a preconceived result is one of my pet peeves. The doctors I used to work with told me to just "toss out" all the numbers that didn't support their theory, because they were more interested in keeping their grant money flowing than they were in what the data was actually showing. As bad as that was, politicians and pollsters are even worse.

    1. Yep, I've heard the doctor thing from quite a few
      Pathetic that it actually comes due
      Politicians it is an easy guess
      They pretty much in a roundabout way confess

  16. Gotta love those fake data stats. Seems like even though we are advancing in technology where stats should be easier to come by, more people are taking a lazy way out and just pulling stats right out of their asses and passing it off as fact.
