Abstract

53.9 is a peculiar number......according to e-government and Public Sector IT News, 53.9 is the percentage of internet connections that are now using broadband. It also represents the average life expectancy of males living in the Calton area of Glasgow. In Nagasaki and Hiroshima the median life expectancy for all bomb survivors exposed to radiation doses of at least 5mGy is 80 years 265 days. Conclusion? Nuclear war is good for you!
