{O/T} Who Says Our Kids Can't Do Math?

No poker content. Haven't played in a while.

Today's Detroit Free Press contains an article about a Detroit cop who shot and killed his wife and then committed suicide. The article contains an alarming graphic that says that Detroit police officers commit suicide at the rate of 28 per 100,000 police officers. OMFG!

As it turns out, Wikipedia says Detroit has about 3,500 police.

Which would be a suicide rate of ... just under 1 (0.98).

I guess the one was that guy yesterday, not sure what happened to the other 0.02. Maybe he gave up carbs for a week beforehand.

Statistics are stupid.

Hi,

I just visited your casino/poker site and interested to give you an ad offer. It would be great if you post a review (with 3 link in the review) for us. For the review, I will give you $10. Please let me know your thoughts.

Thanks,
