Maths lesson

A press release issued by Vauxhall Motors yesterday opened up with the following paragraph:

"A Vauxhall Motors commissioned survey, entitled, ‘Are we nearly there yet?’ revealed over 1 in 9 (93)% of 5-18 year olds are occupying themselves with a phone or tablet during long car journeys. However, traditional car games such as i-spy, car snooker and waving at other drivers, are not completely out the window. It seems the survival of the traditional car game has lasted the test of time despite the introduction of new technologies, with over 1 in 8 (87%) of parents encouraging children to play games not involving technology."

Methinks it is time for some PR person to go back to school and learn about percentages.

Bristol Beer & Blake's 7 - Saturday 26th July 2014

The date for the next Bristol Beer & Blake's 7 will be Saturday the 26th of July, so make a date in your diaries:

When: Saturday, 26 July 2014, 12:15 PM

Where: The Knight's Templar, Unit 1 Temple Square, Temple Quay, Bristol, Avon, BS1 6DG.

All science fiction fans are welcome to this friendly pub gathering.

To get to the pub from the (railway) station, you walk straight through
the ticket gates and foyer, ignoring the main exit to your left, and out
into the covered car park. Go straight through the car park and out, and
you'll be on the path leading to Temple square. As you arrive in the
square, the pub is the large glass-fronted building on your left.

Here's how to get to the pub from the station

The event goes from approx 12.20 to 7pm, though some of us may stay longer.

If this is your first time and you don't know any of us, let us know what you look like and roughly when you'll be arriving so we can look out for you.
