The 95th Percentile

Mischa Beutling, a 6'7", 240 pound 21-year-old is fighting charges of sexual assualt by claiming his penis is simply too big to have been used to commit the crime. A urologist testified as an expert witness and brought with him a plastic model of a penis measuring 8.5" by 6.5". These figures place Beutling in the "top 5% range for size in comparison to the doctor's other patients." Really? Sounds big, but not that big, especially in proportion to his height.

My favorite line from the story: "Justice Margaret Eberhard must weigh the evidence, including the plastic model." I can just picture it now, trying it on for size, exclaiming, "Oh, this is nothing!"
