Submission + - Statistic: More Children Can Use Mice Than Can Tie Their Shoes. (learnstuff.com)

rueger writes: An infographic at learnstuff.com claims that "Today 70% of children between the ages of 2-5 can operate a computer mouse, but only 11% of them can tie their own shoes."

There's no surprise that they don't offer a source for these "statistics, or a reference to how many children could tie their shoes twenty years ago, before computers. And surely they don't bother saying that there's likely no causal link between the two things.

What should we do about "statistics" like this?
