> It was an unnamed Jesuit* who coined the phrase "Give me the child for seven years and I will give you the man" (which is a tad unfortunate given the revealed predilections of some modern men of the cloth)

There has been research done that has shown that the rate of paedophilia is virtually the same in all occupations, ie the rate amongst Catholic priests is no higher than amongst Register journalists. Perhaps Mr Thomson might care to get his own house in order before he starts criticising others.

Job Trends from Indeed.com

Whose piss poor effort is this? Has someone been studying dodgy graphs 101? 6 is a 600% increase on 1, 1.1 million a 10% increase on 1 million, but 100,000 new jobs is a lot more than 5. Without seeing the actual numbers of jobs this graph is rubbish. The only reason for presenting data in a format like this is to hide the fact that there is no story in it.

Today is not New Year's Eve - or the end of the decade

Idiocy

You see a lot of idiocy about date end points. 'A' decade is any period of time that is ten years long, irrespective of when it starts. 'The' decade is whichever 10 year period the speaker thinks is significant. For most people, the last decade was the one where all the years started with 200. End of story.

Arguments about what they called the first decade fall down on the fact that at that time the calendar we use was not in use. Arguments about Jesus' birth fall down on the fact that he was supposedly born in 4BC, although that's based on some pretty long assumptions. Other arguments fall over in other ways.
