Proof of Idiocy

Buried down at the end of Let's Run's weekly update was this item:
Proof that 19% of the world's population is idiotic:
19% of Britains Want an Olympic Boycott
All this proves is that getting a degree from a fancy private Eastern college doesn't mean you actually got an education. First off, Britain is an island which is inhabited by Britons. Secondly, you cannot extrapolate results from a poll of said Britons to the rest of the world. Finally, it only shows that 19% of said Britons are more concerned with foreign policy towards China than Olympic sports--and you'd probably find at least as large a portion that likes, for example, peanut butter more than Olympic sports.

Sheesh. Dumb jocks.
