Here is another one of my favorite quotes from the special double issue of Bloomberg Businessweek on computer coding (Paul Ford, “The Code Issue”, 6/15/15–6/28/15, p. 27):

One study by a researcher at the University of Hawaii found that 88 percent of spreadsheets contain errors.

That one almost reminds me of the proverbial:

29% of all statistics are wrong.

Go figure.
