    Trump’s last ditch effort to raise the unemployment rate and make Obama look bad.

    So THAT’s how they hacked OPM?

    BLS? This has to be the nerdiest B & E of all time…

  • jumpingjack

    BLS has some crazy security – its jobs reports move markets. But this seems like a clumsy and ineffective way to get around it.

        +1 for referencing one of my favorite movies of the 1980s.

    I’m so glad kids are getting interested in statistics! It’s a huge gap in the average education, so kudos to him for seeking out the resources.

    Did someone take his red Swingline stapler?

  • I’m having a hard time believing he was able to break in with his “elbow” — you mean like break the glass? The glass on these old government buildings tends to be really really thick (if not double pane.)

    Damn, I wonder what BLS did to get on Tony Jaa’s bad side?

  • Maybe he forgot his PIV card?

      This. 1000x This. You win the day.

      Heh, I always snicker when I see this formerly referenced in email. PIV has very-well accepted connotations in some circles (i.e. “P-in-V sex”).

    • LOL winner.

    Sometimes you just really, really need some labor statistics?!

    Everyone wants in on Taco Mondays at DoL

  • I can’t think of anything more quixotic. The person could easily end up being bored to death. You know what they say about an economist? It’s someone who wanted to be an accountant, but didn’t have the personality for it.

    Once inside the building, the intruder will find that the doors are locked in the areas producing the market-sensitive data. They won’t let him in no matter how nerdy he might look. Maybe he just hankered to dine at the cafeteria.

    I retired from the BLS in July 2009, but my retirement clock has “May 2009” engraved on it. Maybe it was a former employee trying to pull and April Fool’s joke, but three days late.

    BLS, BLS
    Without our labor
    It’s just BS.

    I love the stats BLS puts out but really, that is just nuts. I wonder where they thought they were breaking into cause who would break into the BLS?

  • Peeeeeeew

    This just doesn’t add up!

  • Louisatim

    Guess he didn’t like the numbers

  • Jose

    What are the odds?
