This will return surprising values for most users, since the default of sample=false is rather unusual when speaking about variance.

Point is:
When using stats_variance($foo,TRUE) the sum is divided by n-1 while the default just divides it by n. So when you expect your variance to be lower you probable wanted to divide by n-1, therefore should set the second parameter =TRUE.
