Sorry bachole, but you are being played for a fool. In most countries of the world they don't count a dead baby as part of the infant mortality if the baby dies within 24 hours of birth or if the baby is born dead (stillborn). In America we count stillborn babies and babies that die within 24 hours. Add to the the fact that we keep alive most babies that would have died within 24 hours with our advanced medicine, but sadly many still die. So our efforts to save babies lives actually makes it look like more babies are dying. If you count the babies in America the way they are counted in many other countries we would have half the infant mortality that any third world country has. Don't be fooled by the way statistics are computed.

Perhaps, smg45acp, but how do you handle the longevity statistics? Do we fail to count the walking dead but Japan does count zombies?

You're right. Apples to oranges.

10) Gallup and Rasmussen Reports Cause a Conservative Pundit Election Prediction Implosion: Before the election, most liberal pundits were predicting that Obama would win, while most conservative pundits (Yes, my hand is up) thought Romney would pull it off. While there was no doubt a little wishful thinking involved, what really happened was that there was a major split between Rasmussen, Gallup and the other pollsters. We believed Rasmussen and Gallup's much more pro-Romney numbers which turned out to be the worst mistake since Napoleon decided that Russia was ripe for a winter invasion.

9) The Trayvon Martin...
