I’ve heard this statistic numerous time in some similar approximation ranging from about 70% to 80%, but it’s mind blowing to me no matter what end of that range one chooses. Even if the statistic were 50% of women were wearing the wrong bra size, I would have been shocked.

From my experience with 23andMe’s genotyping service, when results were ready, I got 254 reports all at once, and they didn’t even include much of the ancestry reports! The reports are listed at the end, and were in groupings of:

What I, as a professional analyst, saw, instead, was the very reasons why America needs tighter gun control. I will also counter a bunch of other points brought up by gun lobbyists that doesn’t involve data, because it isn’t just about the data, of course. But let’s first look at one graph with lots of data.
