The choice of data collection medium could skew your data towards certain known and unknown biases.
Data! A short opinion
Data doesn’t lie.

Not too early
My passenger was bored two minutes into an 18 minutes drive. I tossed her the book I had taken along, as I had a 1 hour wait time at our destination, whilst she jumps on poles and straddles beams. I wasn’t expecting much of anything except to distract her for the rest of the drive […]
Playful: On calories
Dear Parliament, Having taken the time to evaluate my calorie consumption. And having noted that Saturdays are for parties and other fun activities which could induce consumption.

General observation: Each time I travel, I bring with mementoes (usually inexpensive) gifts for each person in the household as well as friends and family. Something to tell them they were on my mind during my trip. My wife does the same. My closest friends do the same. I have observed my siblings do the […]
