My spam FOLDER in Gmail has about 1000 items in it on any given day.

My inbox has zero.

Every once in a while I get a series of emails that fool Gmail's filters, and after reporting them for a while (like thousands of other users do), they'll disappear. Those "once in a whiles" get fewer and farther between.

I lose a few real emails into the spam filter as well - but mostly because I moved to contracting, and I get genuine contacts from foreign recruiters - and they're barely distinguishable from spam by humans. I just have to know to take a peek into my spam box after submitting applications.

To tack on... ...I explain this to my wife constantly. The reason most accidents happen close to your home is exactly as you said -- most driving occurs close to your home. I use it as a reason to have her buckle up even for short trips, but it's also a lesson in our house about manipulating statistics.

Coming up next, the percentage of American's that live "near" water.

If this is timesharing, give me my share right now.
