Biked to work in a t-shirt today, so I declare it to be officially Spring. A friend unknowingly referred to Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” as “An Inconceivable Truth”. And that’s scarily accurate.

Spot the error in the latest government press release: Employment highest, unemployment lowest ever They’re claiming the “lowest unemployment rate on record”. Well, only because the current way of recording it changed in the 1980s. In reality, the unemployment rate was lowest in March 1951, when it was 12. Yup, twelve people were unemployed in …
