    94% of statistics are made up.

      Which is proven by a statistic :-)

        Exactly! Someone got the joke. I can die happy now :)

      Never trust any statistic unless you have forged it by yourself...

      Best regards,
      perl -e "s>>*F>e=>y)\*martinF)stronat)=>print,print v8.8.8.32.11.32"

      Hrmmm....I always thought that 99% of all statistics are made up.....Or was it 96%...ok...94% is probably close enough :)

    Hrm, in dismissing it as a "sophism" you're missing out on a rich field of study. I maintain, on the contrary, that the "Liar Paradox" is as yet to receive a satisfactory treatment that is adequate for natural languages.

[Corion]: The fun show at $work continues, as The Big Project is now in its second week of frantic live-bugfixing and weekend releases where nobody knows what went live. Nothing has been tested anyway.

Corion watches from the sidelines. Or rather, from behind, as my system only gets output from that process and my programs adhere strictly to the GIGO design principle.
[erix]: ah, that's nice to hear Corion :)
