How the hell is 'yay ticky box' not in the lead?

Also +1 for Alternative Facts.
Who even made the rule that we cannot group ducks and fish together for the simple reason that they are both aquatic? If I want to group them that way and it serves my purpose then I can jolly well do it however I want to and it is still a nested hierarchy and you can't tell me that it's not.

That term brings to mind politics rather than alt-sci. Not that I'm fussed about it.

Hey I just found this awesome New Age bullshit generator: http://sebpearce.com/bullshit/

I reckon the renamed alt-sci board should have something like:

"It can be difficult to know where to begin. If you have never experienced this reintegration of unfathomable proportions, it can be difficult to reflect. How should you navigate this magical nexus?"

as its board description. :parrot:

So we gonna do this? It's Sunday morning and I feel like fucking around.

I propose "Alternative Reality Science Extravaganza" as the board name (as Fenrir pointed out, the acronym is gold) and "It can be difficult to know where to begin. How should you navigate this magical nexus?" as the board description.

Of course you realise the rebranding will mean it'll be even harder to drag them kicking and hollering out of the dignified :hehe: and rarefied confines of the science forums. They have their pride you know.

indeed; it was the rebranding of waterside hypotheses as alternative science that finally cause poor Algis to take his bat and ball and move on; iirc eversbane also wouldn't keep posting on the topic if it was accorded only the junk science tag :hehe:
