Science or pasta?

An interesting scientific prediction appeared in the science journal Nature a little while ago .

A team of scientists led by epidemiologist Andrew Tatem at the University of Oxford studied the narrowing gap between male and female athletes and found a straight line on a graph indicating that women are progressing at a faster rate than men. One quantum leap later, they concluded that women sprinters may be faster than men within the next 150 years.

Unfortunately, this graph also infers that women sprinters will outrun cheetahs by the end of the millennium and will eventually finish races before they start them! Woah, time travel!

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
