Other Ten Percent 4/9/10

Apr 09 2010

Well I just had an expert in the field I’m researching e-mail me back and tell me that the research I’m doing can really only be done in a really time consuming way and that a lot of the numbers being thrown around are probably made up, so I feel less bad about my failure to find definitive numbers in two days. Now I just have writing to feel guilty about. YAY GUILT! ALSO YAY INTERNET!
