Not even wrong.
No, I'm not talking about Peter Woit's website or Wolfgang Pauli. Instead, I mean this article, which shows that Allstate Insurance apparently thinks that it's meaningful to look at car accident risk as a function of the astrological sign of the driver. Astrology? A major company using astrology? We're supposed to believe that there is a statistically meaningful correlation between the time of the year you're born and your driving ability? This is why there is a crying need for math and science literacy.
