Quote of the day

Pierre Gallois, French scientist

Quote Of The Day

The function of the expert is not to be more right than other people, but to be wrong for more sophisticated reasons.

Dr David Butler, British psephologist

[ed. does this remind anyone else of a certain Nobel prize winning economist?]

Since I didn’t know what a psephologist was, I figured you don’t either. Here it is:Psephology /sɨˈfɒlədʒi/ (from Greek psephos ψῆφος, ‘pebble’, which the Greeks used as ballots) is a branch of political science which deals with the study and scientific analysis of elections. Psephology uses historical precinct voting data, public opinion polls, campaign finance information and similar statistical data. The term was coined in the United Kingdom in 1952 by historian R. B. McCallum to describe the scientific analysis of past elections.
