Re: Too early to tell. @dropbear

Sorry to return to this thread, but in my book "we are missing $236571 in our balance, therefore there's definitely an unknown quantity of -$236571 operating in the universe" is simply called "bullshit". If you can tell me "well the orbit of Mercury has always been a teeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeny bit off, and that -$236571 you mentioned would explain the discrepancy perfectly" then I'll be inclined to accept you found something meaningful, but just plugging a hole with an invented plug of "just the right size" for no other good reason just doesn't cut it with me, sorry. "1+1= -5 PLUS FUCKING MAGIC FOR NO FUCKING GOOD REASON" is charlatanism, not science. Feel free to convince me otherwise, but be advised you'll need to bring along unrelated and well-founded arguments.
