Who (Also) Won the Week (2 January 2022)

Prompt image for the Fandango's Who Won The Week prompt

I base these posts on Fandango’s Who Won the Week posts, and I use the opportunity just to look at my own newsfeeds.


There was a tiny follow-on to the news yesterday. This New Year was the warmest here since records began. Parts of the UK hit 16C. Don’t worry, I’ll do the sum for you. That’s 61F.

“Records began” here in the 1880s, a hundred fifty years ago. Ish.

Does anybody else get nervous about this? There are 150 other years to choose from, so it is statistically very unlikely that this year should be anything –est. Would you back a horse at 150:1?
