Re: 0870: "Advertising"

It turns out that we can measure slowness. There's even a unit for it, known as the second. If one thing is twice as slow as another, then it takes twice as many seconds to complete. I don't think he was completely serious, but your thoughts are interesting nevertheless. Actually, I was being serio...

Re: 0870: "Advertising"

The ones that always get me are statements like: "The new version is three times smaller than the old one." Ergargleblarg that's not possible ! It can be "67% smaller" or "1/3 the original size," but saying something is "twice as slow" is about as useful as sa...
