Insane Things That Corelate With Each Other
Did you know that US crude oil imports from Norway correlate almost perfectly with drivers killed in collision with railway train? It’s true! Why do these things correlate? Obviously, Norwegian oil magnates are murdering Americans with trains now.
It’s all from a little site called Things that correlate, which takes any one set of numbers you choose, and then dredges through a database of other numbers to find similar patterns. Please remember that correlation is not causation, and you can cherry pick data sets to find all kinds of meaningless patterns.
