David Brailsford’s ‘Marginal Gains’ theory is nothing new.


The theory was articulated in 1614 by William Campden and expressed as

“Many a little makes a micle.”

But I prefer the Scots language variant;

“Many a mickle maks a muckle.”

“Many a mickle (little) maks (makes) a muckle (lot).”

So.  There.

 

Come on folks. Don't just sit there gawping. Say something. Get involved.
