In the statistics field, it is said that correlation does not imply causation - just because two variables are related, it does not mean that one causes the other. To prove this, a new website - Spurious Correlations - is posting daily graphs showing the surprising relationships between pairs of random statistics.

Some are extremely unusual - Nicolas Cage films v female Harvard Law Review editors - while others are altogether unexpected, such as the inverse relation between the divorce rate and number of lawyers in Virginia.

Per capita consumption of cheese v number of people who died by becoming tangled in their bedsheets:

All things are possible with the addition of alcohol, perhaps it all starts with a cheese (and wine) reception or party.

If there is a correlation between eating Cadbury's chocolate and promiscuity, how does cheese factor into the equation ?

Cheese factors in every equation, and I don't care how ****ing runny the Camembert is.
