Hardly Anyone

Continuing the 53% = Overwhelming Majority theme just for fun for a minute. Logically deducing that 47% must then be an Underwhelming Minority, I thought I'd bring you some other barely-noteworthy fun facts from around the world:

  • 47% of homicides in San Francisco are gang-related. Hardly any!
  • Japan Airlines operating profit is down 47%. Shareholders rejoice! (Honorable mention to Big 5 Sporting Goods and Goldman, who had similarly robust results)
  • My favorite: the news in the elevator this morning that 47% of the public opposes pushing through a bailout/stimulus package for the auto industry. Hardly worth notice.

49% of the U.S. population is male and completely insignificant.
