Provocative Title (MetaThread)

Postby owlice » Wed Oct 20, 2010 7:05 pm

Vague ramblings hinting at possible alternative theories. Suspicions of possible collusion by two or three government agencies. Statement of distrust of these theories and aforementioned collusion. Admission of lack of background in areas mentioned above. Request for input.

Reference, link to, or direct image of Picard facepalm image. Thinly veiled insult to intelligence. Link to Wikipedia article.

Partial quote of previous poster's post. Expression of high dudgeon with link to site explaining Latin expressions on argumentation. Deriding comment about Wikipedia as a source.

Partial quote of another poster's post; promise to view video.

Belitteling comment followed by disparaging comment. Suggestion to use razor other than Occams in a manner that will permanently quell redundant posting redundancies about alternate theories. Alternate disparaging comment with suggestion of asexual reproductive attempt. Posting of youtube vid related to attempted reproduction unallowed due to rules of the board.

Links, links, and more links; a fullness of quotes. Caustic comment about quote mining. Bombast and vitriol; more links. The clouds have cleared; do you admire the view?

Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels; doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles; brown paper packages tied up with strings; wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings.

Petition for more information re: exciting news.

Request to newcomer to read earlier posts.

Observation that two links in previous post don't work, and another leads to a site NSFW. Crabby question about poster's intentions.

Found 1 bit of exciting news but am uncertain as to the validity of said news.
Decided to post it anyway but with unverified authenticity
(likely the only future web event that was searched for in the past)

These are some of my favorite things. Gish's ghost, galloping. Logical fallacies of the false dichotomy kind. Moderator note: recycling without adding value may be deleted, with extreme prejudice.

Reiterate that the news is really worth waiting for.

Hastily posted statement to interject into exciting discussion to give impression that I am semi-educated or at least give a hoot. Picture to show I can use tools (with or without sources and /or a link). Another question to those who are more educated and could actually solve differential equations. More statements trying to show I understand portions while implicitly divulging gaps in knowledge.
