@sailrjim  You're using the exact same words drug addicts use Jim... These were the same words my mom has been using for years and it will catch up to you sooner or later. We just helped my mom accept in-patient treatment for drug addiction yesterday. Pain pills are not a long term solution because you'll continually need to take more and more and as you get older your body won't metabolize it as well and you'll become less social, less productive, you'll lose your appetite, you'll get dehydrated and constipated and if left untreated you'll die. Of course until you hit bottom you aren't going to be motivated to do much as possible to manage your chronic pain without narcotics. There are so many alternatives. Of course RX opiate addicts will desperately try to convince themselves and those around them that there is no other option.

@patricknd90 you aren't nitpicky you're smart, which is the opposite of this researcher

@Roawa OK! read the whole article again... I think looking at tea leaves would be a better way to interpret global protests... If I was the boss of this researcher I'd do everything I could to get him to retire, resign or just outright fired. His research is beyond worthless. He clearly has no understanding of how to analyze/present data in a meaningful way.

I sure do the love the lone constant blinking light in the middle of nowhere northeast of Whichita, Kansas. Whoever created this data presentation must be testing how stupid and gullible people are when it comes to bogus data interpretations... There really is no other sensible explanation.

Looks like they let the YouTube PR department 'tweak' their stats big time! Their lists leave way too much data out of the analysis. They excluded two of the most popular videos of the (spanish guys pretending to have a baby and some random Asian thigh massage) Both these videos made it into the top 10 of all-time this year except of course they aren't good PR for YouTube I guess? And Friday at number 1? Hardly... They must count all the parody videos and unauthorized videos of her too? And how is she NOT considered a major label musician? She is!!! By excluding all the major label musicians from the top 10 of the year they exclude the majority of the the top 10 most viewed videos of the year. I wish YouTube could be a bit more sanguine about data summaries
