Battle: Helsinki

The numbers are at it again, trying to destroy all of humanity with their inherent wickedness. This time, the battle-lines are being drawn in Finland, where numbers quite literally robbed the country of 2% of its industrial output in April:

Statistics Finland revised the industrial production figures for the months from January to April in order to correct the error detected in the calculation system.

The statistical office on Tuesday said Finnish industrial output increased by working-day adjusted 6.9 percent year-on-year in April. That compares to the initial 4.9 percent growth estimate.

Of course, the lamestream media is jumping to the numbers' defense, attributing the cause to "human error." We in the Math Skeptic community know that there is no such thing.
