Sales of liver and other offal have collapsed, from more than 50g per person per week in 1974 to just 5g in 2014, reflecting a move away from traditional butchers to pre-packed supermarket meat.Nobody eats 50 grams of liver per week. Nobody eats 5 grams of liver per week. This mean disguises the real point. PEOPLE ARE DIFFERENT. Some people like to eat liver, most don't. Liver lovers consume about a pound per week. Liver lovers are getting sparser, probably by attrition. Everyone else eats exactly zero liver in a lifetime. The important figure is not mean weekly consumption but how many people are liver lovers. The mean doesn't take you anywhere near this info. You get a similar distortion in a more important set of info when you use means for employment and income. "Mean income is $28K" tells you LESS THAN NOTHING because a mean is pulled up by the huge numbers in the plutocrat zone. The proper numbers are more detailed, requiring a graph to visualize. And when you see the graph, you INSTANTLY AND VIOLENTLY detect the fraud. Just like liver, the important figure is how many people are working, or how many people have money at all. Some people work full-time, most don't. Some people have lots of money, most have lots of debt. The number of full-time employees is shrinking, and the typical wage for MOST of those employees is also shrinking. The "global warming" crime is possible because the criminals use stats. The criminals use mean global temperature to mush up a complex set of changes in water and air currents. When you see the changes in DEEP OCEAN water currents, you understand that Evil KKKarbon can't possibly be causing it. As soon as you see a GRAPH of temperature and CO2 against time, you can INSTANTLY AND VIOLENTLY detect the fraud. Neither of these pictures tells us what's actually happening, but both direct our attention toward the earth's core and magnetosphere, not the mean concentration of one tiny chemical component of the atmosphere.
