Complaints People Make That Are Statistically Untrue
With life there’s ALWAYS something to complain about. I catch myself complaing about college, the internet running slow, petty little things! Here in CNY we can complain about the snow and cold, while maybe in Florida they can complain about tourist. About everything we complain about in life may not be true.
Here are some things people complain about that are statistically untrue according to Cracked.com:
- “Everything Is So Expensive.” - Economists have proven that the prices of most things have stayed pretty constant over the years. High-end manufactured goods have actually gotten much cheaper over the past few years. Example: Cell Phones
- “People Are Getting Stupider.”- IQ scores have actually risen 24 points since 1914.
- “Crime Is Out of Control.”- Property crime, theft and burglary have actually been dropping since about 1993 and the homicide rate is at its lowest level since the 1950s, despite all the negative news.
What are some other complaints that just aren’t true?
