For instance, when someone tells you that Bahrain will receive a “flood of 100,000 fans” for the forthcoming F1 (people, not those devices which circulate the air), and you know that the maximum capacity of that venue is 45,000 that means that either someone seriously miscalculated the popularity of that sport and undervalued the capacity of the BIC, or a GDN reporter added a zero inadvertently to that figure quoted in that article, or it could also be that someone is trying to pull our legs and enthuse us, marketing wise, about the event. They might as well pull the other one, it’s got bells on.
No matter, I hope that the F1 will be an unmitigated success.
And hope that brainfarts like these won’t affect the attendance. Oh hang on a minute! Maybe without that brainfart the flood would have increased to 176,000?!
