Quote of the Day

I heard if u hit a kardashian u win a championship.. Kim k holla me!!! I need ya for 17 min
- Ty Lawson

Here's the context.

I like how he specified exactly 17 minutes. Andrew Gelman had a good blog post recently about how rounded numbers communicate uncertainty. If he said 20 minutes we'd understand that as "about 20 minutes" but when someone says "I'll be there in 17 minutes" you expect it to be 17 minutes sharp.
