Do politicians understand statistics when they are merely shown
the digits?
Good point. A thorough personal experience says a zillion
times more than any figure. Although... when we can find
a sound way to transform such figures into EU-wide losses
in terms of hard euro's, that might help significantly.

Yesterday I received 18.446.744.073.709.551.615 pieces of spam.
I presume that's the number of electrons it took to carry
the messages? ;-)
