    News QuiZ

    Just a thought let it die if no interest. So a Quote from a news item preferably from a major news company. To see who can guess what it refers to. Hopefully Optimistic items not relating to the current epidemic.

    "We're getting four volunteers to do every number, and by doing that we can get to over 99% accuracy. I'm sure OCR will improve but right now it can't match what our volunteers do."
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.

    Nah. The nice weather climate professor who is getting people to digitise his paper rainfall records. I thought he would use three per record but he chose four.
