Cranbrook Ratio

The Cranbrook Ratio*, named for the Fifth Viscount Cranbrook, is the ratio of relevant factual information to strength of opinions held.

*Oddly, but perhaps appropriately, John Phillips-Thomas, Fifth Viscount Cranbrook, discoverer of the Cranbrook Ratio, is no relation to Gathorne Gathorne-Hardy, also Fifth Viscount Cranbrook. This is due to the former Lord Cranbrook being a purely fictitious invention, unlike the latter, who not only seems to actually exist but also to be rather accomplished. The resemblance was, and is, purely coincidental.
