One of the great aspects of this life is that each and every person has their own take on it. Perspective is an interesting thing because you never know exactly how another views different things. For example, who hasn't wondered when looking at a red object and thought, "everyone calls the color of this 'red' but does everyone actually see the same thing?" With this interlude, I am brought to a story.
The other day, Cam, Nigel and I were driving home from Wal-Mart and we were debating on the degree of hotness of some famous person. I don't remember who. But, for the story's sake, you need to know that Nigel is notorius for being the one with having the most, how can I say it, "liberal" view of beauty. I'm known as the one is extremely strict on the same and Cam is just somewhere in the middle. Finally, at this moment in the car, we decided that something needed to be done to quantify these levels to more accurately compare ourselves. We needed some kind of empirical evidence.
A plan was formulated and a study was created. We decided that we needed to somehow obtain a mean value for a designated, similar population. We figured the best way for this was to all sit at the same location with a piece of paper, and on the left side of it, the numbers 10 through 1 in descending order. Haha, ok, don't judge me, this is purely scientific I swear. We needed a high-traffic area as to obtain a large sample size to maintain a high statistical power. We went and sat on a bench above the ELC and observed the passing females verifying that all three of us observed the same people. Subjects ranged anywhere from an estimated 70 to 18 years old. After a period of 45 minutes, I had to go to a class, so the study was concluded. Sample size was about 75. Results were as follows:
Nate's average: 4.36
Cam's average: 4.67
Nigel's average: 5.09
So, after results were compiled, turns out that we were right in that Nigel had the most liberal view and I had the strictest. Note, however, that when we reached the lower range of the scale, seems that I was more cautious to issue a rating of 2 or below when Nigel was the opposite.
Who said you never apply what you learn in school? ;)
It's great. - What's great? This: I have more zits on my face right now than i did between the ages 12-18 put together! 5! btw it's not great, it's sarcasm. (the pa...
