Bonus Friday link: another fable for our times

Following on from the “Big Data or Pig Data” fable from the previous post, Commenter Jeff Walker just provided a link to another brilliant scientific fable for our times. You have to click through and read “On the Tendencies of Motion“! It’s from way back in 1981, but it’s only gotten more relevant since then.

One thought on “Bonus Friday link: another fable for our times

  1. “For 95% ± .06 of all actions, there is a corresponding reaction at an angle of 175 ± 6° from the first, and usually within 3% of the same magnitude.” Brilliant.
