Fun with Stats

The language of science is mathematics, and the language of modern science is statistics.  It should be taught in schools the way we teach foreign languages:  as a necessary component of a rounded education.

Here is a great hour-long video on the joys of statistics by renowned professor Hans Rosling.  It's fun and interesting and well worth your time.
