Pub science, but actually bar science. Explaining to the ‘rents how the weather works based on two weeks of geography fifteen years ago and a lifetime of half watching the BBC weather forecast (which as Danny recently noted is getting increasingly surreal). Words like isobar, cyclone and anti-cyclone get thrown into the mix, and small condensation diagrams are drawn on the table to little avail. Only when I explain that the constant volatility is akin to the workings of the financial markets do they grasp the inherently chaotic nature of the barometric system.

Score one for Working Lunch and Dragon’s Den over Sian Lloyd.
