Fair Warning - Cocktails, earthquakes, and eggs
By Sophie Warnes • Issue #102 • View online
Hello! Happy new year to you - I assume you had a good one, whether that be chilling with family, or getting drunk and standing in the cold watching fireworks.
My year has got off to a sterling start - I spent NYD watching Cats (which should be at least subtitled Extreme Close Ups of Jennifer Hudson’s Tearful Snotty Lips, if not entirely renamed that). Here’s our film review in facial expressions and a ranty thread from me on its absurdity. I’ll save you the money and horror though: Don’t see it, it’s bad. Frankly, my year’s been fairly shaky from there. I went for my first run today though, and that felt pretty good. :)
Remember, there’s now a Fair Warning archive which is searchable so if there’s a data story I’ve featured previously that you’re trying to find then that might be helpful for you.

Hopefully that’s enough to see you into 2020 with a data-tastic bang (don’t; I’m cringing inside). If you enjoy reading this week-in, week-out, or if you missed me over the Christmas period (I missed you! I did!) then why not forward this email to a friend and let them share in the joy?? Also, you can buy me a coffee or sign up to be a Patron. See you next week! Soph.
