A lot of the stuff I do is so minimal, and its designed to be minimal.
The smallness of it is whats attractive. Its weird, cause its so
intellectually lame. Its hard to see me doing that for the rest of
my life. But at the same time, its what I do best.
-- Chris Elliot, writer and performer on "Late Night with David
Letterman"

"The lawgiver, of all beings, most owes the law allegiance.
He of all men should behave as though the law compelled him.
But it is the universal weakness of mankind that what we are
given to administer we presently imagine we own."
-- H. G. Wells

Till then we shall be content to admit openly, what you (religionists)
whisper under your breath or hide in technical jargon, that the ancient
secret is a secret still; that man knows nothing of the Infinite and
Absolute; and that, knowing nothing, he had better not be dogmatic about
his ignorance. And, meanwhile, we will endeavour to be as charitable as
possible, and whilst you trumpet forth officially your contempt for our
skepticism, we will at least try to believe that you are imposed upon
by your own bluster.
-- Leslie Stephen, "An agnostics Apology", Fortnightly Review, 1876

HOW TO PROVE IT, PART 3

proof by obfuscation:
A long plotless sequence of true and/or meaningless
syntactically related statements.

proof by wishful citation:
The author cites the negation, converse, or generalization of
a theorem from the literature to support his claims.

proof by funding:
How could three different government agencies be wrong?

proof by eminent authority:
I saw Karp in the elevator and he said it was probably NP-
complete.
