Have one in twenty done both? There's a connection, so it's probably more than that. What about both at the same time? Now that's just disturbing. Very disturbing. Ugh... Get that thought out of my mind!


Explain my incoherent rambling

Two sets of statistics that come out to 1 in 20?
"one in twenty" = 5%?

Another rulebreaker? No

Two sets of statistics that come out to 1 in 20? Yes, but please clarify by what you mean by "come out to"
"one in twenty" = 5%? Yes, but for reasons I can't explain, it will be easier to think of it as one in twenty

As in two separate statistics, both of which individually have the odds of 1 in 20?

I suppose I should guess this as well (but it doesn't fit with your puzzle statement):
Two separate statistics, for which the odds of BOTH happening is 1 in 20?

IS there a literal 20 of something involved here?

Can we call the two things Thing One and Thing Two please? Sure.

is Thing One an activity? Yes for svv of "activity", I really wouldn't put it that way a state of mind? a physical state? Yes for svv of "physical state", but I really wouldn't put it that way either

same questions for Thing Two please. Same, except "physical state" and "activity" are less of a stretch.

Sex was "OTRT"...Is the relevant issue:
Relationships?
Dating?
Courting?
Attraction?
Reproduction?
Partnerships?
Marriage?

Thing One:
An attribute?
A state of being?
The quality of abstaining from an activity?
An idea?
A rule?
A law?
A personal value?

Sex was "OTRT"...Is the relevant issue:
Relationships?
Dating?
Courting?
Attraction?
Reproduction?
Partnerships?
Marriage? none of these

Thing One:
An attribute? DOYD of "attribute"
A state of being? DOYD of "state of being"
The quality of abstaining from an activity?
An idea?
A rule?
A law? What do you mean by "a law"? Do you mean the law itself or something related to the law? Because we're referring to people here and people are not laws, so no if it's the first, but a law is relevant.
A personal value?

As for Thing Two, attribute and state of being could be depending on what you mean, and laws are relevant once again.

Posted on said status The one about looking up google in pig Latin? Not relevant? But think about it.... How would you say "google" in Pig Latin? Now what would happen if you went to that website?

Exploring the Yope/Sort of:
Would it be accurate to describe Thing One as:
Related to behavior of sexual nature, if not literally SEX?
(Thinking of "making out" or whatever the kids are calling it these days...)

To have done Thing One:
Do you need another person?
Thing Two?
Would you be outside? Inside?
Same for Thing two.
Is Thing One illegal?
Is Thing Two?

(Anyone else thinking "Cat in the Hat" with this "Thing One/Thing Two" business??)

Would it be accurate to describe Thing One as:
Related to behavior of sexual nature, if not literally SEX? Well, some of it is sex, but that's not the best way to describe it
(Thinking of "making out" or whatever the kids are calling it these days...) Some of it could be sex, some could be kissing, or other stuff like that, but that's still not the best way to describe it. And you're going OTWT

Do you need another person? Yes
Thing Two? No

Slight blooper: X is not illegal, but it involves being the victim of an illegal act. So an illegal act is involved, but you would be the victim, not the perpetrator.

Sexual assault? BINGO: Thing 1 (X) is being sexually assaulted. However, I just realized I made a blooper earlier, and that while it does refer to being sexually assaulted, there is another detail to it. In other words "Being sexually assaulted while under condition Z" although I'm not sure "condition" is the best word. "Circumstance" perhaps? Sorry for not making that clear earlier.

OK, so let me try and recap what we know so far:

1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted at college.
1 in 4 (women? men? people?) have done some thing Y.
Combining the two, it could theoretically be proposed that 1 in 20 could have been sexually assaulted while doing thing Y, which I suspect would be disturbing, both in actuality and conceptuality.

This good?

1 in 5 women will be sexually assaulted at college. Yes
1 in 4 (women? men? people?) have done some thing Y. It was either college students in general or students at UConn, I can't remember. Otherwise, yes
Combining the two, it could theoretically be proposed that 1 in 20 could have been sexually assaulted while doing thing Y, which I suspect would be disturbing, both in actuality and conceptuality. Not exactly. It could be theoretically proposed that 1 in 20 have been sexually assaulted and done thing Y, not necessarily at the same time. However, if it was at the same time, it would be disturbing.

This good? Other than my notes, yes

Is Y underage drinking? No, but oTRT

Also, I'm sort of cringing now hoping this is going to an okay place as you sort of squicked me the minute we got to sexual assault as fodder for a puzzle. yeah, I realized a week or so ago that it might not be appropriate. And now I'm having more and more doubts about how appropriate it is. So if you want me to abort this puzzle now, that's fine by me. But if you want to finish it, that's fine too. But you've been warned. Sorry if anyone is offended by this.

So, RECAPing from long, long ago in this puzzle:
Y could be illegal, can be done inside or out, and does not involve other people. It could be described as a physical state or activity moresore than X.
Good so far?

Doing something else while drinking?
Doing something else while drunk?

Is the location in which the drinking takes place relevant? or the amount drunk? must one reach a specific level of intoxication to have done Y?
