 Cyril Burt was very competitive at the age of 85 with the Wisconsin identical twin studies. And whenever the authors came up with a larger sample than his, he liked to add one or two sets of identical twins to the sample.

It was very hard to redo all the factor analysis by hand and he might have used some of the same numbers, but it didn't change any of his conclusions (i.e. that identical twins on almost all measures were about as different as testing the same person twice).

He was very courtly and liked to hold the arm and walk all attractive females to the subway at the age of 85.

The Fed announcement is a horse from the same garage. Never to be upstaged.
