    Alt text: Despite it being imaginary, I already have SUCH a strong opinion on the cord-switch firing incident.


    So true and relevant. It gets even more extreme in publications. Random text example (here: CMS Higgs discovery paper - all time estimates are guesses):
    I wrote more about that topic a while ago.

    I once almost got fired because my socks were too short.
    The only reason I didn't get fired, was because my mother passed away, two days before the "inquisition", and everyone felt sorry for me.

    Not sure what this has to do with your post, other than, absurdity is universal, at pretty much every level.

    I used to wonder why things cost as much as they do. Cars, for example.
    This is why.
