Just as I was sitting here, refreshed, inspired and looking forward to fulfilling my task of bringing education to the world, my attention was caught by my old friends over at Live Science.
Please believe me when I tell you that I consider that I have done more than my fair share to highlight the appalling practice of using inappropriate units of measure. I never again expect to refer to salad plates except in acceptance speeches for awards for improving the lot of humanity. However, I cannot rest easy knowing that, in the name of science, TCM are getting away with it.

“The trapped sediment could fill more than three million railroad boxcars a year.”
How many teaspoonfuls is that then, Brains? I would further remind you that four hundred and thirty three billion is “more than three million”.
Not only that, but TCM fail to say whether the dramatic effect is positive or negative. As if we are supposed to know. As if we did our science homework last night. Twats.
There is another article about how the smoking of marijuana in youth affects memory. And do not think that I am going to provide obvious punchlines.
