You're better off plucking a number out of the air but geez, how many live and die by these numbers.

The next time you see an election poll result, think about this blog entry. It's all smoke and mirrors and the sampling is less than a conference room dinner.

You really don't want to know how many hack attempts you receive every day, but you need to know. Here is hoping you've been wearing protection on the Web.

It's not too bad. I like Dong-gun Jang in this.
