“A lack of common sense can cloud statistical results. For instance, a technology firm discovered that 40% of all sick days were taken on a Friday or a Monday. They immediately clamped down on sick leave before they realised their mistake. Forty percent represents two days out of a five day working week and therefore is a normal spread, rather than a reflection of swathes of feckless opportunists trying to extend their weekends.”

So how did Steven Colbert get this picture of me kiteboarding?  I don’t even remember that day (though it looks like I should have.)
