Running amok

BBC reports that, with current trends women sprinters may outrun men in 150 years’ time. The gap in world record times has been decreasing over the past century, so give it more time and women will eventually overtake men, right?

However, anyone with an intellect more than that of a cabbage should realise that linearly extrapolating like this is total and utter bollocks. Of particular interest from the latter link is the ‘fact’ that by 2064, with current trends, women will be able to run the marathon at a faster speed than a man running the 100m.

What university are these jokers at? Oh, Oxford. Explains a lot.
