Fun with stats

Care of a new American gameshow called 'The Power of 10':

"48% of Americans said people who don't speak English annoy them". Erm, including non-Americans? Seems a bit harsh.

"41% of American women said they prefer chocolate to sex". Yes, I'm going to make that joke: How unfortunate for American women who have sex with other Americans....

"37% of Americans said when they wake up in the morning, they do not look forward to going to work". I'm way more concerned about the 63% who do not think the Curse of Cain is that bad.

"32% of Americans have kissed a dog on the mouth". Any connection to the sex / chocolate figures?

"7% of Americans think professional wrestling matches are real". Figures for those Americans who think that the Bishop of Rome is a Seventh Day Adventist and that Ursus arctos horribilis habitually uses restaurant rest rooms are not yet available.

"42% of Americans think girls should be allowed to try out for and play on the boys' football team". But how many male Americans....

"10% of Americans said they have shaken hands with a U.S. President". 30 million odd? Yeah, right.
