Occam's Razor

Imagine walking into and out of a supermarket. If you did not purchase anything then the supermarket managers probably don't even know you were there. If you purchased something, the supermarket knows something was sold (they know a bit more if you use a membership card). This is the reason qualitative data is so hyper important. Agree?

Venture Cyclist

While you can, and if you haven't, please go ahead and sponsor Hannah or me for the Hazon 2006 New York Bike ride. One of the action phrases for the environmentally minded is "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle". as in reduce what you use, reuse it many times, and recycle it rather than trash it if you have to discard it. not a bad thing for our times.
