Oh, damn. I’ve been wondering what that crying was I’ve been hearing down the intertubes these last couple of months. It was my poor Blog Monster complaining that it needed feeding with posts.
A six spot burnet, Zygaena filipendula, last week. Well, I think it is.
Just by luck, an email was sent around the UK statisticians about the Met. Office’s new game. They want to find out how best to present uncertainty to the general public (the ones who aren’t banned from the web for instigating non-riots, anyway) and have come up with this game, where you can help sell virtual ice creams by interpreting the weather report. When you play the game, you get the information presented in one of a couple of ways, so they’re testing how well people do at understanding these. And you can enter a draw to win a met. office t-shirt! Ooooo!
By the way, the photo doesn’t have anything to do with the weather game, I just like it.
