    Not really a poser (or Puzzle) ,but.......

    I saw a sign on the tube the other day that said "mind the gap - Last year 52 accidents)

    is it me or does those kind of statistics have the opposite effect as intended?

    approx 2.7 million passengers a day (crossing the deadly gap at least twice)



    Sorry for the irrelevance- was just bugging me

    0.0000026% of all crossings result in an accident, shocking stuff. I think we should fill the gap in.

    :-) Agreed - down with the gap (probably not a good slogan)
