Also, the headline continues "Britains oldest microwave still going strong after 40 years - and 150,000 meals".
I make 150,000 meals in 40 years a little over 10 meals a day.
Top journalism all round. They've clearly just multipled 40 x 365 and got 14,600, rounded it up to 15,000, and then somehow acquired an extra 0, a mistake they make both in the headline and article itself.
I make that three errors in the title alone:
1) they have no idea whether it's 'Britain's oldest microwave'
2) it's not 40 years old
3) he almost certainly hasn't cooked 150,000 meals in it
I'm guessing whoever wrote this rushed it last thing on Friday so they could fuck off home. Amazing that you can actually get 600-odd words of journalism out of a bloke that reckons he's got an old microwave.
