TV license detection vans emit radio waves which pick up how fresh fingerprints are on your remote.

They ask half a dozen people living in the Cotwolds what they watched on Saturday evening, extrapolate the results and hey presto 43,000,000 watched the opera.

the national grid is a highly complex operation

the controllers increase and decrease output often based on TV schedules

for instance, they prepare for a surge in demand between peak time programmes and during ad breaks

these surges are measurable, the power needed to boil a kettle is known, for example

human are as predictable as clockwork

which is why the powers that be have been so successful at giving us - well not me, but you get my drift - such predictable tv habits

yeah...but how many people actually brew up during the ads

some get a tin...some go for a piss.....and how do they know how many people are in the room ......

and when me and the missus are in a room and the TV is on, she might be reading and i might be watching the telly....she'd well pissed off if they counted her under such circumstances
