Some Anecdotes and Analogies for Illustrating Statistical Ideas

This article, created by Dennis O. Chanter of Huntingdon Research Centre, provides fun, "real life" examples of various statistical concepts, which can enliven lecture and illustrate such concepts for better understanding for the students. The site is structured in this fashion: the importance of variability, precision, correlation, regression, hypothesis testing, biased sampling and references. Each segment is quite brief, but still provides a nice description and also examples for each topic.
