I've been dipping into John Haigh's excellent book on probability. Click on the image to buy it through the High Stakes gambling bookshop (I thought it made a change from Amazon) although I couldn't possibly condone spending any longer than necessary there.
It includes a new favourite statistic of all time. My old favourite (and how sad to have a favourite statistic you're possibly, or even probably, thinking) is that two thirds of accidents are caused by sober drivers.
My new favourite is that 99% of Belgians have more legs than average. Fantastic.
I think you can read the whole book online here if you want. Try the link to see if it works.
