As I pointed out to some friends yesterday when we discussed this BI slide show, the facts are counterintuitive, not controversial. Many of the facts rely conditional probabilities, which is counterintuitive to the average person. Conditional probabilities are never factored into our fight-or-flight reflexes--at least not consciously. However, if every person was given a solid grounding in statistics in high school, most of these facts would not be as controversial.
