Tyler Durden's picture




 

Here's a peculiar statistical aberration:

  • Household Survey people employed: +873,000 (source)
  • Part-time jobs for economic reasons: +582,000 (source)

-> 582,000 divided by 873,000 = 0.666666666666*

Aka: precisely two thirds. Whatever are the odds... Goalseeking much Arima-X-12?

Sacrifice is going on tonight

Calling out patriotism for what it is will likely invite a number of junks. Even people who can see lies all around them still cling to the lie of patriotism. It's a tough one to give up... Like voting.
