Another phenomenon

Message 11012 · Freeman/Pavey · 19 Feb 1998 15:52:22 · Top

Fact:
There are twice as many Strathspey messages on Thursdays and Fridays
than on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Reasons:
(1) SCDers at work are so guilty about getting absolutely nothing done
the previous week that they actually do some work on Monday and Tuesday.

(2) People are so tired from dancing all weekend that they don't have
enough energy to think, let alone type.

(3) It takes all those mathematicians and scientists two and a half days
to organize their thoughts.

(4) Anselm's equipment takes two and a half days to catch up to the
flood of messages from enthusiastic SCDers who have just danced all
weekend.
