My Dirty Little Secret

My daughter won first prize for her science fair project. We did this project at the last minute. The results on which battery lasted the longest? Lies.
All lies.
I ran out of time and made it up. Like a single mom with a full-time job and two kids has the time to sit around and watch which battery lasts longer?? Fercryinoutloud!

So when you hear through the grapevine that a certain type of battery lasts longer than another, keep in mind that this data might have possibly come from a nine year old and her very busy, very stressed out science-fair hating mom.

Yanno, I long suspected something like that was going on. The store brand alkalines always lasted longer. I wonder how many Independent Product Testing Laboratory technicians are overworked parents who are told by their supervisors "I don't need it right, I don't need it good. I need it Thursday. LAST Thursday!!!
