18 Feb 1549 Although I did check back with my source and found no update, Guinness did decide to recognize the matchstick creation. None.
11 Feb 1548 I didn’t check Mike’s math(s): full growth would take 2,000(-3,000) years, not at least 20,000. None.
4 Feb 1547 None. Yeah, saw the “unbeliveable” typo. Not something that will be used again, so nothing I can fix. Oh well!
28 Jan 1546 Sheng Thao, the mayor of Oakland, Calif., is female, not male (and the first Hmong-American mayor of a major city in the United States. Cool!) None.

PLEASE Read This Before Using the Form:

  1. Please don’t submit an error already included above! (Obvious? Apparently not: I constantly get reports that are already listed. Please slow down so you don’t waste your time or mine!)
  2. Useful Reports: Actual errors in stories, URLs, or other things that actually matter to readers.
  3. Non-Useful Reports: Typos in reader letters or ads. Such are not my error!
  4. Honorary Unsubscribe errors are not listed here; its archive is kept up-to-date with any changes or corrections, so check the particular person’s page first. If you find something not already corrected there, feel free to use the form below to report it.

Sorry this all sounds really grumpy, but all I’m really trying to do is avoid literally hundreds of reports saying the same thing, and save your time. Thus: Thank You for your useful reports!
