Help Please!

I’m trying to figure out who is the chinese person in my family.

Let me start off by saying I don’t think it’s me.

To bring you up to speed: I heard today that 1 in 5 people living in the world is Chinese. That got me thinking. There are 5 people in my immediate biological family, therefore, one of us must be Chinese.

So, I’m running this through my head:

My mom? I don’t think so.
My dad? He just doesn’t act Chinese.
My brother Jake? I wonder.
My sister, Sung Tsa Zung? Doubtful.

I’m pretty sure it’s Jake.

But any help would be appreciated.

:laughing:

1 in 3 people have problems computing statistical information.

I thought it was 4 out of 3 people.

But thanks for nothing, Gobbo. :laughing:

That helps. I’m leaning more and more toward believing it’s my brother, Jake, and away from my sister, Sung Tsa Zung, with each link you provide.

66% of statistics are made up on the spot.

Hey yo,

Your mail carrier doesn’t happen to be a chinese redneck statistical logician, does he?

Not even close.

I did the math on this one and came to the conclusion that my mail carrier is Russian. The demographic statistics of my city indicate that .3% of the population is Russian, and mail carriers happen to make up .3% of my city.

That one was too easy.

[size=67]The 66% figure used by Daybreak has got to be conservative. For the record, 100% of the stats referred to in this particular post were made up on the spot[/size]

Just to let you know, I am still managing to maintain a straight face … well, I am now approximately down to 66%.
