Fun with stats -vwv

In 2000, there are 19115 males with no religion aged between 15 and 19 (source). If there has not been any drastic changes, roughly the same number applies today for males from 21 to 25.

74% of Singaporeans are citizens (not PR or non-residents). (source)

77% of Singaporeans are Chinese. (source)

82.2% of Singaporean Chinese are myopic. (Wu, HM, Seet, B, Yap, EPH, Saw, SM, Lim, TH, Chia, KS. (2001) Does education explain ethnic differences in myopia prevalence? A population-based study of young adult males in Singapore Optom Vis Sci 78,234-239)

17.7% of Singaporean Chinese in 2005 has university qualifications.
38.5% of Singaporean Chinese university graduate in 2005 speak mandarin at home. (source)

Singaporean smokers made up 12.6 percent of the population. (source)

75.6% of Singaporean males are working (variable) (source)

37% have O positive blood. (source)

8% are left-handed.
(Hardyck, C., & Petrinovich, L. F. (1977). "Left-handedness," Psychological Bulletin, 84, 385–404)

90% of Singaporeans like shopping, i.e. shop at least once a month. (recent report)

Putting it all together.
19115 * 0.74 * 0.77 * 0.822 * 0.177 * 0.385 * 0.874 * 0.756 * 0.37 * 0.08 * 0.10 = 1.19

Out of the 4.3 million people in Singapore, there is only one non-smoking Singapore citizen who is an atheistic Chinese guy aged 21-25 and has O+ blood, perfect eyesight, found a job after university, is left-handed, speaks mandarin at home and hates shopping. I am so unique!

(yes, yes, I know many assumptions are not valid but if i'm really out to proof my uniqueness I can very well scan my fingerprint)
