Re: "Nuke, because it doesn't go off in the winter"
Actually, schools are teaching kids that spring is the beginning of March these days, because all the teachers are thick and so is everyone at the Met Office. Speaking as the first year of comprehensive school, I predicted 32 years ago to my final year junior school teacher, Mr Hope, that this appalling shit from the uneducated, would be one of an large number of inevitable demonstration of ignorance, created by giving up on teaching children to value facts at any level of rigour, innit.
It's funny, with "fewer" versus "less than" being important today amongst the pseudos who wouldn't recognise an oak tree, (while remaining completely silent about every misconjugation of the verb To Be on Eastenders, "We was!" "'E were" and "Dispatch" seemingly ok among the many "Judgments", along with Billion no longer being bigger than a Miljard,) I heard some guy use fewer for a non integral comparator the other day, or more accurately fewest.
Which is fewest, a ton'o sand or a metric one?
Fucking shocking. I give up.
Ignorance in bliss, I no longer care, I'm beaten. There was a day when I'd stand up and fight over an allegaton that Air France's concorde didn't land at Heathrow to pick up a few extra passengers en route to NY from Paris, but I'm just too old to give a fugue.
