Were you aware, and did you know, that one out of four Americans:
- are obese
- (a rate matched by their dogs)
- will struggle with hunger
- will contract a STD
- will, if a woman, be sexually assaulted on a campus
- are “underwater” in their home loans
- are without a friend
- will, if a student, binge drink
- have their savings destroyed
- will die of cancer
- have their deaths related to tobacco
- live below the federal poverty level (children only)
- have high blood pressure (the silent killer)
- will develop a fatal disease if they contract tuberculosis (the silent killer)
- will develop diabetes (the silent killer)
- will develop osteoporosis (the silent killer)
- will experience bladder weakness
- has reduced kidney function
- as teens will attend a party where other teens drink
- will be severely shaken as babies (a new syndrome)
- will, if men who get mumps, will have painfully swollen testicles
- will suffer from depression
- is born in poverty?
Obviously, this is one, sick, twisted, emaciated, obese, poor, disease-ridden country. With statistics like these—which are just a small sample of those available—people must be dropping dead on the sidewalk in massive numbers daily.
Why all these groups, advocates, activists, propagandists, and other agitators fixate on the “one out of four” statistic is anybody’s guess. Perhaps “one out of three” is so high as to appear absurd, and “one out of five” is not deemed sufficiently large enough to frighten.
Meanwhile, true aficionados of made up statistics will enjoy this site “Everything I do is wrong“, which claims that milk will reduce the symptoms of PMS (of which one out of four women undoubtedly suffer).
As men at this delicate time in our lives, we will want to have recourse to guidelines of how to apologize for not doing anything wrong. This site can help. It is the source of the graphic above.
