Life statistics


‘I’ve always like the idea of having life statistics. How many upturned plugs will we stand on? How much toast will we burn? Will we say “sorry” more often than “thanks”? How many hours will we spend not listening to someone but pretending to? What’s our most frequent lie?’

– Joe Dunthorne, ‘Ghost pots’ in Chloe Aridjis (ed.), Where You Are: A Book of Maps That Will Leave You Completely Lost (London: Visual Editions, 2013)
