The math was smarter than me

Still going through my check of "what went wrong" and one thing I've already discovered is the pure unadulterated math is smarter than me.

The pure math, with 0 adjustments (such as upping ford's vote in his riding, or increasing the liberal vote in the few ridings they could have won) had 16 errors.

whereas the adjusted math, had 19

In short, I am going to be quite a bit more conservative with any fancy formulas I develop in the future to make the sheets "better" as clearly the pure math itself did a far better job than I did with this election.
