AAP adopt ACTION Mathematics

Back in 2005 ACTION Buses launched a new version of mathematics which seemed to revolve around the notion of more being less and vice versa. At the time they advised that 8:37pm was seven minutes earlier than 8:30pm.

This new version of mathematics hasn’t been widely adopted, however yesterday AAP trialled it in their 4:40pm weather forecast. Amongst the forecasts was “Canberra……………………………Showers increasing. 24 23”. The minimum temperature is higher than the maximum temperature, once again proving that less is more and vice versa.

Perhaps it is unfair of me to pick up on a silly little typo like this, but I found it amusing…I think Clive Robertson found it amusing whilst reading the weather this morning too.
