Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Permanent link to this comic: http://xkcd.com/605/

My friend Jerry* actually used to do this kind of extrapolation.  In 2002, He extrapolated that by now I would have 57 grandchildren.

He only missed by 46.**
* RIP, and sorely missed.  Damn, he could play some great jazz.  Now I'm sad.
** If you think I have 103 grandchildren you have had either too many or too few martinis. Drink up and recalculate.
