THE EMPIRICAL TESTING OF COMMON SAYINGS. NUMBER 1 - ABSENCE

Lets take a piece of folklore, or “folk wisdom” if you prefer, and put it to the test.

Statement: People say, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”.
Test: First commute through to the DGP in about five weeks.
Findings: “People” really do talk shite, don’t they?
