Ten reasons to become a Statistician

  1. We do it with logic, frequency and error.
  2. If we flunk it out, we can always transfer to other streams.
  3. You never have to be right, only close. (We always have Taylor's Series. :P)
  4. Statisticians are significant (ALWAYS).
  5. No one knows whatever we do, so we are always right.
  6. Estimating parameters is easier than dealing with life.
  7. We are mean and variable lovers.
  8. We are complete and sufficient.
  9. We can do it both discreetly and continuously.
