"not everyone graduates high school"

But a very high percentage does.
For example, at my high school, 96% of seniors graduated on the 11th of June, and at the end of summer school, 98% will have earned their diplomas.

Wow how would you die from testing a 9 Volt? The only way I that even possible is by swallowing the 9 Volt to test it.... If you can die from testing a 9 Volt then you probably could somehow die from the trick electric gum...

That statistic is false.

You can also assume, that he smokes a full 25 cigarettes a day (a pack) then you double the math above and you get 6 years taken off your life..

doesn`t account for the "10 years off your life" OR the 10 minutes off your life.

Let`s pretend smoking takes 5 minutes off your life.

25 Cigarettes in a pack = 125 minutes off your life, or 2 Hours and 5 minutes.

200 Per Carton(8 packs) = 1000 minutes or 16 hours and 40 minutes.

So let`s pretend someone smokes 1/2 a pack a day.
2 days/pack....16days per carton....22 cartons per year let`s say.
22 cartons X 16h40m = Roughly 366 hours/15 days and 6 hours.

Every year you take 2 weeks off your life. Assuming this fact is true and assuming this math is accurate (which it is not because I round it off for my ease) and the person is a regular smoker.

So The person begins smoking at the age of 16 and stops when he is 55.
55-16=39 --- 39 years of smoking x 2 weeks = 78 weeks, or 1 year, 25 weeks and 6 days taken off his life.

Average lifespan of a non-smoker in the US : 77-80
Average Lifespan of a smoker : 65

You can assume a cigarette takes 10 minutes like the video says, where all you do is double it to 3 years - a few days.

So that statisti

That spider fact is false. It was proven to be false on another site which I am too lazy to look for.

Less than half of people graduate high school virgins. It`s more like 33%.

cnd... you math does not make sense...
you are assuming that there is an even distribution of people having sex for the first time
so... if you didnt understand that because i really have no idea what i said
if there are 100 people in high school you are saying 25 people had sex for the first time as a freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior... but as we all know nothing is perfect in the world so that is impossible

79% of internet statistics are made up 84% of the time, and are only more than 35% accurate 26% of the time.

also, that video was pretty lame. the intro clip made it even more lame.

meh. if almost exactly half of ppl graduate high school virgins. that means they are at least 18 years old.

if they enter high school at 14

(14+18)/2= 16

and thats just assuming that the rest of the ppl had sex at 18. and assuming all the ppl who had sex in high school had it at 14. almost all those were bs anyways

You could count the number of gay people by looking at a random group of people and calculating the number of gay people in that group.

Or you could make the number up, it doesn`t matter.

Ph.. photoshopped...?

I wonder how many of those are even CLOSE to true. Likw how do they determine the amount of gay people on the planet? I don`t remember being asked...

Or how many spiders one swallows in the night? WHY would spiders crawl down there anyway, it`s acidic.
