Do we really need this "article"? Do people ever actually use this acronym? ħumanUser talk:Human 16:33, 17 March 2009 (EDT)

If not, I propose that we put it in the fun space. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 16:46, 17 March 2009 (EDT)
Well, I use it, and I picked up from a friend. But if someone wants to move it, go right ahead. And tell me how to put something in the Fun namespace while you're at it, please. MDB 16:55, 17 March 2009 (EDT)
You should be Careful about what you can Pick up from Friends. How would you Pronounce it? (I vote for Fun though.)--Tolerance 17:06, 17 March 2009 (EDT)
I pronounce it like this: "pie-doo-maa". MDB 19:45, 17 March 2009 (EDT)
To move a page into the Fun namespace, you give it a name beginning with "Fun:". Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 17:08, 17 March 2009 (EDT)
And followed by a colon. So to Create this Article you would put Fun:PIDOOMA in the Search box and take it from there.--Tolerance 17:19, 17 March 2009 (EDT)

Peanuts[edit]

Peanuts used it in 1953; it's even a bit chivalrous. Dunno if this needs an image or not, just throwing it out there. Random surfer (talk) 23:32, 18 December 2010 (UTC)

I don’t need that image, thanks. Anthonyhcole. — Unsigned, by: 58.111.105.175 / talk

Benford's law[edit]

The Benford's law argument is not a good one. Benford's law applies to certain sets of numbers, but NOT all numbers. Specifically, it does not apply to numbers with a limited range. (the height of Americans expressed in feet, for example). Benford's law will be explicitly false if for every statistic you quote, I adduce the complement (if you say "10% of the population is left handed", I add "90% of the population is not left handed".).

Suggest deleting. 2607:FCC8:6300:5400:2DD1:D54A:47BA:3291 (talk) 22:36, 30 November 2019 (UTC)

Examples[edit]

Maybe more exampels would be a idea?--Deli-delibirda! (talk) 16:28, 7 January 2020 (UTC)
