I suggest everyone contemplate the difference between statistics and probability.

Probability is predicting the chance of something in the future.

Statistics is looking at the frequency of those things which have happened.

IDiots try to use probability to look at something which has already happened. The probability that something has happened is 1.

It has happened.
