January 30, 2022 If there is a chart, it’s science!
Even Hasidic zealots are getting with the times and making proper charts to prove “facts!”
This use of data and statistics is just terrific. This is an older street poster from my archives, which shows “Why the smartphone is disgusting to all pious Jews.”
It goes on to share the following data on what responders said about smartphones:
A smartphone causes:
95% = gossip and naughty talk
55% = marital problems
50% = cut off from the children
30% = desecrate the shabbes
15% = left the good, true path
Sadly, my picture is cut off, and I don’t remember what part 100% of responders said a smartphone causes. I think it’s the decline of the generations. Not to worry though—after I’ve done the math in my lab, I’ve come up with off-the-chart percent verifications of the numbers of people who absolutely positively provided data for this not-at-all-doctored report. Snort.
Meanwhile, speaking of, ehrm, “science,” data and numbers that don’t lie, here’s another classic one with regards to smartphones:
422 teenagers left the Orthodox path in 2017 as a result of their mother’s smartphone.
Where and how this information was scienced up doesn’t matter. It always gets a laugh out of me.
