Truthiness in advertising

After a short night (I dropped off sometime around 3 am), today wasn't so bad. Not being at work would have been better, of course, but you can't have everything.

I had to give a talk to the School about one of the degrees that I co-ordinate. But I didn't have the correct enrolment figures so I relied on truthiness to make my point. That seemed to work. Here's Stephen Colbert explaining the phenomenon on The Colbert Report.

And now I'm going to crawl into bed. It's a long time since I've been able to thrive on four hours sleep.
