after reading the artless banter by several saints fans on that page i would not be surprised at all if that's a real account. i have never seen such a display of linguistic ineptitude in all my life.

According to the govt, there are approximately 878,974 illiterate people in N. Carolina as opposed to 530,215 in Louisiana. So it seems you have a much better chance of finding linguistic ineptitude all around you at home.

Also, you keep saying how these people aren't worth arguing with, yet you still go back for hours and hours and argue with those same unworthy people!

Maybe you should go read what Einstein said the definition of insanity, he said it was doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Sound familiar?

NC population: 9.5 million

LA population: 4.5 million

so despite being more than twice as populous, we have proportionately almost thirty-three percent less of an illiteracy rate than louisiana.

nice try. have you heard that one about liars and statistics?

Use the link, the people under basic literacy rate is 14% vs 16%. On the home page it has an option to compare two states, go do that before you start pointing fingers, it just makes you look dumb. Also, there is a 2% literacy difference, where in the world did you get this 33% figure? I at least link my info and ,ale it verifiable.

sigh

if there are 878,000 illiterate people in north carolina out of a population of 9.5 million, that's an illiteracy rate of ~9%

if there are 530,000 illiterate people in louisiana out of a population of 4.5 million, that's an illiteracy rate of ~12%

You're right, let me takes Phils word for it who is claiming there is a 33% diffiference between the states even though the that is more than twice what to total is to begin with. So I guess that means Louisiana must have -19% illiteracy rate.

The funny thing about it is that you don't take the result of a different population size and plug that result for a different population. NC has 14% and LA had 16%, so use those numbers if you insist on those new population figures. Also. Go to the site I gave you which is the official govt site on illiteracy numbers and you will see the population figures as of last testing was 6.6 mil and 3.5 mil population sizes.

no matter what you say about it, you are more likely to run into an illiterate person in LA than NC. trying to pretend you were anything other than concretely wrong about it utterly discredits anything else you say ever

Let see, on one side we have Phil's opinion, on the other side I have hard numbers directly from the govt site on illiteracy, with a link to that site to verify that the numbers I gave where exact numbers calculated out!

I dunno, I kinda leaning towards the concrete verifiable numbers direct from govt, but hey, maybe it's just us dumb Saints fans thing to trust an actual verified number over the feeling and guess of a random rival fan, we're silly like that.
