Where was the choice that says the figure stated for end of 2012 was a big fat lie?

The storage company down the road from us had a sign board with a joke a week posted. A few years ago when the human genome had just been decoded, it displayed: "Stop in for free genome advice." That advice would have been about as useful coming from a storage service clerk as would a prediction from any of us on what the unemployment rate will be - as if any of us have access to the needed data or the skills to make useful predictions.
