Stats


Some interesting statistics I found over the week-end.

18% of all the Nobel prizes ever awarded were given to Jews. And yet, Jewish people comprise only 0.2% of the earth's population.

That's a wild statistic... Does Nobel publish stats for the ethnic-group with the most Nobel prizes?

Einstein had the best Mad Scientist Hair ever! How could anyone compete?

I don't know. Got this stat from the little fact-a-day calendar at work.

Don King comes close, but I don't think he'll ever win the Nobel. . .unless they start awarding them for marketing ability.
