The Numbers Are In

In case you haven't figured it out, I kind of like numbers/stats (a little) and I'm pretty stoked about that our baby girl is almost here. Hence the whole Baby Stichter Pick'em thing.  The numbers are in and now it's official so let's check out what we've got.  I have included all guess no matter how "interesting".  I can tell you up front that the ludicrous heights and weights were all submitted by the male half of the population. Way to go boys...

When I looked at the data for patterns there surprising weren't many.  The one couple that entered has been excluded from the analysis.  Overall men guessed that Baby Sticher will be born 15 hours earlier than women (men - 1/2/10 7:02am, women 1/2/10 9:59pm).  Women guessed that Baby Stichter will be both lighter (men - 7.88 lbs, women - 7.72 lbs) and shorter (men - 21.80", women - 21.74") than men.  Not sure any of this means anything, just a great waste of 5 minutes if you get snowed in next week. That's all for tonight, I'm still trying to get the more interesting half of our marriage to blog some, but I don't think that will happen in the near future.  Gotta go, the wife wants to investigate hooter hiders and disposable diaper sacks on the internet.  Any suggestions?


  1. I'm impressed how close the guys are to the gals. I'm sure I would have been one of the outliers.

  2. Oh and Walmart sales the diaper sacks. Dunno if they are cheaper tho.

  3. You have way too much time on your hands. Having that baby will quickly solve that problem. :)
