Nerrrd Tiiime[edit]

I thought the correlation coefficient was conceived by Galton but really discovered by his student Pearson? Also we should have an article on Pearson; basically Galton's protege with an equal contribution to statistics, but more racist. I think it's like a rule in statistics; can't do anything without being an utter dick. No, seriously, just about every major advancement in statistics was either due to eugenics or due to weapons development, except for that one contribution that came from trying to improve addictive substances.CorruptUser (talk) 02:43, 18 June 2016 (UTC)
