Trouble is that that proves the theory, so therefore it's not crap, and will therefore disappear in a flash of Dichotomous Reality Syndrome (DRS).

But anyway, wasn't Sturgeon's law that absolutes aren't?

Not that that makes it any better, because it means that if your earlier theory was absolutely true, then it absolutely wasn't -- but, given that it absolutely can't be absolutely either (or maybe it can, because it absolutely can't be absolutely not), it's suffering from Dichotomous Reality Overblown to Silliness Syndrome (DROSS).

Or not, maybe.




Well, I'm glad we cleared that up!
