My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

My theory about crop circles is that aliens make some of them, but they use the same techniques humans do: stomping around on boards with rope handles.

And say what you want about OJ, but he's showing his persistence. I truly believe he'll track down his wife's killer if he has to search every golf course in the world!

Since we're way off topic anyhow, I must take issue with Jonathan's invocation of Ockham's Razor. O's R says that the simplest explanation is the reasonable one to believe. But why? Because the universe is a tidy place? Says who? Because simpler accounts are more convenient for us? What does the universe care for our convenience?
Just a philosophical point.

Does the fact that Crop Circles can be done by humans means it cannot be done by other means?


No but Occams Razor dictates that they are.

If you truly possesed magical powers would you waste them doing card tricks?


This was my response to a lady on the bus who (after I did a few card tricks) asked me if I'd sold my soul to Satan.

Occam's razor suggest the best likely, not the only, solution to a problem utilising the simplest and fewest hypotheses. You CSI fans might have caught this principle in a recent episode, "When you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras."

As others have pointed out, in practise Occam deals with probability rather than certainty -- such that Occam might conclude that your stunning Top Change really is the result of simple Magic, rather than complex -- if hidden -- manipulation Smile
