Journalists and Numbers


I don't know what it is with journalists, but put them near numbers and there's a good chance they fall apart. Here's an example from today's Independent:

Maybe I'm getting old, but in my day 12 and 17 were under 25.

As it happens, despite my being over 25 I'd known of Youtube for some time as one of my friends sent me a link to a video from it; he's also over 25, but knew about it because he'd invested in its start-up.

Hmm, if I ever get any spare money, maybe I should ask him where to put it.
