clowngress 10 per cent approval rating

Postby gozer » Mon Sep 30, 2013 7:43 pm

an interesting bit in the fine print:

drugs dealers: 31%
pimps: 26%
al-qaida: 13%
the crabs: 11%
congress: 10%
"disk killer" computer virus: 10%
hookworms: 8%
fred phelps: 6%



confidence level: 95 per cent
p=·001
margin of error ± 4

With a margin of error of ± 4 per cent, it is possible that Fred Phelps is more popular than Congress, the crabs, and al-Qaida--but pimps and drug dealers are unreachable.

This just proves yet again that the story of all the good work that hookworms are doing needs to be shared more widely.

Indeed.

I am unsure of all of the science around this, but I do not think this decision was about the science.

There are clinical studies regarding HW for MS being run out of the UK but registered with FDA. I will let you search those if interested.

Key words to keep in mind - cheap, threat, and (potentially) effective.
