    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    I love it when the populations go the last digit, ie instead of 278 million it's 278,058,881 - spurious accuracy if ever there was. Probably had numerous additions and deletions to that figure in the time it takes for <insert renowned CW idiot here> to look up what spurious means.
