Very exciting start to this month, with lots of subs and the editors posting above average numbers - fantastic. The top four positions show a really close competition. Hyperlinks to subs on the blog, as usual.

YES!
BINGO
Throngsman -Just looked at the Blog,although I'd like the points,Brexit Turd set for Trafalgar Square 4th Plinth wasn't one of mine.
It was, according to the archives! I've just had a quick trawl through the writer's room, got to page 14 and gave up - probably missed it on page 3 - could the real writer please stand up and be counted?
I think it was yours, Tony. Originally under the title 'Lest we forget'?
Lest we forget -AND I forgot.
Thanks,apologies for giving you extra work Throngsman
No apologies needed. I make mistakes (most don't seem to get noticed), editors make mistakes - name attribution is a drop down and it's easy to pick the wrong one. Gratz on doing so well this month.
At the risk of being 'that guy' I think I had 3 NiBs when you did the mid-month count
Sorry, of little consequence obvs...

You may find the most interesting part well into the lecture, when he talks about probability. Unlikely things are much more likely than most people expect.

Highly probable, I'll look tonight.
cheers...and a global sorry for the 'obvs'
It took some finding, but I'd typed two of your NiB lookup tables as A,Mantra instead of A.Mantra (strictly I'd typed it incorrectly once and Excel autofilled the second one is my guess). I have three columns for NiBs because although in general we only have two NiBs a day sometimes we have three (and in fact that has happened four times this last week) Once a contributor is entered in a column for a second or subsequent time Excel autofills as soon as I start typing. As it happened two of your NiBs were correctly typed in in one of the columns, incorrectly in the other.
Consequently you have an awesome score at the moment, but so does YaBasta so I expect to see jackets off and shirtsleeves rolled up by dawn.
I wouldn't worry too much, t-m.
Imagine how it would be if Chris Grayling were awarding the WoM, with Daine Abbott doing the arithmetic for him.
I feel an article on Excel Spreadsheets coming...sorry for the trouble.
