On the way to work this morning, I saw a bus with an ad on the side that said "If you don't answer the Census, we don't know how many buses to buy." This disturbs me for several reasons:

  1. The Census is every 10 years. Presumably they need to adjust their bus purchases more often than this.
  2. Private industry doesn't have a Census, and they generally manage not to either provide large quantities of unused goods and services, or deny them to paying customers.
  3. They apparently didn't intend or expect anyone to apply even the rudimentary level of thought to notice my objection 1.

Facebook isn't Twitter, but Facebook does apparently have a limit of 3 SMS lengths. So I might as well post anything requiring thought here.
