Comparing small data set records to large data set records is the
apple/orange comparison.

But the data sets _aren't_ equal.

The only way to make the comparison is with the 1930s records that
still stand as records.

He knows how to trim the headers so no one in math or physics will see
his "small data set records = large data set records" nonsense.
