select *
from   fact_table;

DESCRIPTION
----------------------------------------------
The central table in a star schema, 
storing measurements for the linked dimensions
Hang on, surely all tables contain facts?!

Only data warehouses are worthy of storing facts in apparently!
Maybe that explains why "NoSQL style" eventual consistency is gaining popularity ;)
