HOW TO PROVE IT, PART 7
proof by forward reference:
Reference is usually to a forthcoming paper of the author,
which is often not as forthcoming as at first.

proof by semantic shift:
Some of the standard but inconvenient definitions are changed
for the statement of the result.

proof by appeal to intuition:
Cloud-shaped drawings frequently help here.

"IBM uses what I like to call the hole-in-the-ground technique
to destroy the competition..... IBM digs a big HOLE in the
ground and covers it with leaves. It then puts a big POT
OF GOLD nearby. Then it gives the call, Hey, look at all
this gold, get over here fast. As soon as the competitor
approaches the pot, he falls into the pit"
-- John C. Dvorak

"Theres always been Tower of Babel sort of bickering inside Unix, but this
is the most extreme form ever. This means at least several years of confusion."
-- Bill Gates, founder and chairman of Microsoft,
about the Open Systems Foundation

In arguing that current theories of brain function cast suspicion on ESP,
psychokinesis, reincarnation, and so on, I am frequently challenged with
the most popular of all neuro-mythologies -- the notion that we ordinarily
use only 10 percent of our brains...

This "cerebral spare tire" concept continues to nourish the clientele of
"pop psychologists" and their many recycling self-improvement schemes. As
a metaphor for the fact that few of us fully exploit our talents, who could
deny it? As a refuge for occultists seeking a neural basis of the miraculous,
it leaves much to be desired.

Psi Phenomena", The Skeptical Enquirer, Vol. XII, No. 2, pg. 171
