    1 in 4, I might have abstained, or I could have spoiled my voting paper.

    I wasn't aware that a quarter of votes were spoiled.

    I doubt that they were. But mine might have been.

    Is this confirmation bias.........

    Phone call between my Brother and myself

    Jody "that 205 gti you are restoring is never going to be worth 25K, you can buy 80,000 mile clean cars for 7K"
    Bro " I very much doubt it "
    Jody " Have a look on ebay...."

    Bro "waffles"
    Meanwhile Jody goes on ebay and finds 205 gtis for sale

    10 minutes later

    Jody " John there's a freshly restored dimma special edition here for 24,000. A fully restored car for 8k, another fully restored for 9k, 80,000 mile un restored for 5k. Your car doesn't have the same engine it left the factory with, you have no history and while you have restored it, you've painted bits the wrong colours, changed the seat covers, you haven't done anything to the engine or gearbox, it's not even an original car !!! "

    Bro " silence "

    So was that CB?, I had one opinion, he had another, I did some research to show why I felt the way I did. Once I'd found evidence that confirmed what I felt to be true, I shared it.

    Have an educated guess.

    Do they? Got a study that shows that or is it just what you want to believe?
