Knight Errant

Laura Shannon
Former Features Editor

Twenty-seven percent of female lottery winners hid their winning ticket in their bras. However, you can rest assured that Laura Shannon will not be among them because she is too busy looking up obnoxious statistics to enter the lottery. Her favorite statistic is that 45% of Americans don’t know that the sun is a star, and she didn’t know that either. That’s probably one of the many reasons she does so poorly in science. Another probable answer is that she, like an estimated one out of ten people, has an intense phobia of stuffed animal heads, making paying attention in Mr. Lyon’s room particularly difficult. Because she is part of the 30% of people that can flare their nostrils, she figured she ought to prove it the stunning picture of her that’s attached. And in the time it has taken you to read this, Oprah Winfery has made $523.
