Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Statistically speaking

The statistician would always speed up as he approached an intersection, whizz right through it, then slow down again to the speed limit once he had gotten past it. Came the day when he was the driver of the carpool, and his passengers were understandably unnerved by his driving style. One of them (fingers white from clutching the seat) finally asked why he went into intersections so fast.

"Well," replied the statistician, "statistically speaking, a person is far more likely to have an accident at a junction, so I just make sure that I spend less time there."
