    I'm assuming if there is Federal money involved, then there is a way to make it happen. Fudge the numbers all you can, get the money, and roll the dice, if and when an audit ever comes.

    It’s easy validate with simple addition, check my last post. Show me the data. Otherwise it’s all just speculation.

    Haha, sorry. I edited my post with some additional basic info.

    I'm not going to say much more. I don't want to be told I wear a foil hat. :)

    Speculation? Sure, I'll give you that. In my years of watching the way powerful use any means possible to get a result, then like I said, they will find a way. I really don't think 1+1 always has to equal 2, if the penalty is less than the reward.

    Or they could just answer it like this.

    I think being dubious of government and the intentions of whatever higher power institutions is really healthy. So I like what you're doing. It's a thought exercise we're able to perform without any negative repercussions. Many places in the world that is not possible and it shows how little power the people have.

    This is really hard to do, but I try to start with a null hypotheiss, instead of starting with my own opinion. Then ask questions, until I think I know what is happening. In this case, I think we've peeled back a couple layers already. We and/or everyone else might not understated the purpose of the metrics or the exactly the way they're aggregated. Every metric was built to tell a story, id like to know the source of the metrics and ask what story they're trying to tell me before I start to tell my own.

    But we all know you do!
    But is it a tin foil hat or an aluminum foil hat?
    Go ahead, admit/show your age.
    Can you even buy tin foil anymore???
    Yes, I admit it, I am just old!

    And yeah, I am pretty sure you can't buy tin foil anymore.
