what hasn't been the case? that more sheets of paper and more pencils have been sold than computers? I'm almost certain this is the case, even in the gadget-awash United States.



The article talks about bikes outselling cars. Hence I'm referring to bikes outselling cars. I'll be happy to talk about "paper and more pencils have been sold than computers" on Reddit, but not on HN.

what hasn't been the case was bikes outselling cars. It hasn't happened. And not it is. Seems significant.

Are you kidding me? Of course it happened! How many cars do you think were sold in 1900?

The statement we're talking about is "... it hasn't been the case for 60+ years". 1900 was 113 years ago.

I think he means the bikes outselling cars part
