On Friday, we asked readers to submit amazing demographic facts. The submissions were all fascinating, but we could only pick one...

The Winning Entry:

A team of researchers from the University of British Columbia found that 96% of test subjects used for experiments are WEIRD—members of societies that are Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich, Democratic. Additionally, they found that WEIRD people see certain concepts and situations very differently than other cultures (particularly poor people in developing nations).
