Today, in the interest of historical preservation and writerly laziness, I re-present a post from January 2020, a time before the world turned upside down (and of course I mean before we learned that such a thing as murder hornets exist). Enjoy, and Happy Friday!
I saw an article headline that said, “A ton of people are experiencing issues with their iPhone.” Perhaps it’s the scientist in me, or maybe it’s the fact that I work with people who speak English as a second language, but this phrase is annoying and demonstrates how lazy we have become with communication.
Assuming the average American body weight of 185 pounds, a ton of people is approximately 11 people.
Eleven people are having issues with their iPhone. Is that really worth writing an entire article about?
