Cool people use linux, cool people surf, sharks attack surfers?

... there are two data points for the shark attack.

I hardly consider that a positive correlation, OR a proper sample size :P

Probably Microsoft rustling up a few 'accidents'.

This has to be one of the most random/pointless things I've ever seen...:lolflag:

The sharks are actually robots controlled my Microsoft. Wait a few months and this trend will decrease due to all of the robots either blue screening or being bogged down with viruses.

And yet more people in need of a John Allen Paulos book. The good news is that Innumeracy is on sale at Amazon for a cool 10$ right. Please do mankind a favor and read it.

Correlation is not causation etc. etc..
