The key to any endeavor is to be open to what circumstances present. So when we were spurred to find out the average age of the men who have set world records in the 100-meter dash, we went and found out. This did not come from out of the blue, of course, an item in Saturday’s Daily Dose concerning Jim Hines’ world record in that race at the Mexico City Olympics inspired it.
The results are in today’s Daily Dose. We have a knack for stuff like this and the research involved was a lot of fun. And since it is the second decade of the 21st century it wasn’t as difficult as it would have been, say, 20 years ago. It was still involved a fair amount of work, however, but we enjoyed it immensely.
Today’s Thought for the Day is an old saying, “Fortune favors the brave”, which we use to talk about being ahead of the times.
