When correlation means nothing…

CorrelationMeansNothingNext time someone tried to tell you that X causes Y because a study found a correlation…send them here to see how closely completely unrelated things can be correlated.

For example, who knew that the number of people killed by getting entangled in their own bedsheets so closely correlates with the total revenue generated by US skiing facilities? Or that honey producing bee colonies has an inverse correlation with juvenile arrests for marijuana possession? With correlations that close, there HAS to be some causal connection, right? 😉
