This is where we confer honor on those who have earned the title of Prophet. Or, where we mock them. One or the other.

Noted.

What's that supposed to mean?

I think it means that Roy has actually studied psychology (and other 'ologies') at a postgraduate level and so does not trust a subjective 'how do you feel' test to generate valid data. The plural of anecdote is not data and all that.

As much as I like to cast aspersions on psychologists making up data and claiming statistical significance from minimal data sets, that almost never happens these days. I'll stick to mocking the evolutionary psychologists :haha:

I already said that. See?

Okay, I realize that was a bit vague, but that was the intention behind it.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."
