Friday Fun Fact #4: Regrets

leave a comment »

via xkcd.xom

I wasn’t sure wether or not to post this as a fun fact, because it’s hardly a fact. Don’t even think about checking the numbers – the very existence of this popular comic made that impossible. Thousands of google results are people commenting on, or sharing, this. It does make a valid point about life though, and I strongly suspect that the graph quite aptly reflects the proportion of real regrets.

What I know for sure is that the proportions of this graph hold perfectly true for my life so far. o_O”
