Finagle’s Third Law of Mistakes

Finagle’s Third Law:  In any collection of data, the figure most obviously correct, beyond all need of checking, is the mistake.

Corollaries:

2. The first person who stops by, whose advice you really don’t want to hear, will see it immediately.

This is a Unix Fortune.
