What a great scientific study you’ve just provided us with, thank you so much. But your use of such outstanding empirical evidence is without reproach.[/quote]
Is it just me or do I detect a hint of sarcasm in your post?
I wasn’t making any claim to be doing a scientific study or to be presenting any great empirical evidence. Sorry but scientific studies is my day job (which I am doing right now actually, even though its Sunday) I am just here to have a social chat on a topic that interests me, that is I’m talking off the top of my head, I’m here to relax and pass the time (I don’t have the time or energy to do a scientific study or statistical analysis of the topic at issue here). Not everything I write can be a scientific study (its time consuming enough having to write up one thoroughly researched and double checked scientific document, I don’t have the time or energy to do the same with my social chit nor does anyone else I see posting here).
I’m not sure but sounds like you may have some disagreement with what I am saying. Care to point out exactly what it is?
Are you perhaps disagreeing that black athletes have a genetic advantage over white athletes when it comes to winning 100m sprints? Are you perhaps suggesting that the color of the line up of the athletes in the last several Olympics 100m finals is a total coincidence. Would a thorough statistical analysis (the one your bagging me for not doing) prove the skin color of 100m Olympic finalists to be a complete coincidence perhaps?
BS I could have done no such thing because I was previously unaware of the existence of any such article until you pointed it out to me just now. I wasnt reading T-Nation articles 5 years ago (only been reading T-Nation maybe a year or two). Sounds like an interesting article though, hope I can find it.
I am currently in the middle of writing up my PhD thesis (even though its Sunday here) on the topic of how light is able to be transmitted through periodic sub-wavelength apertures in conducting thin films and with a transmittance much greater than one in some cases (interesting stuff I assure you).
Point is that in between posting in this thread I am in the middle of writing a scientific document and perhaps as a result when I post here I’m sounding all scientific like and using big words as well? My apologies if my “big words” were too much for you but like I said right now as I write up my PhD thesis my brain is in “big word” writing mode.
(I guess its better than doing the reverse and writing stuff about genes and sporting performance in my chapter on the “Development of a Rigorous Model of an Infinite Array of Sub-wavelength Slits in a Perfectly Conducting Thick Film”).
No its just a simple spelling error. Sorry but I only spell check my thesis (MS Word is pretty good, spell checks it as I write). I’m a mathematician not an English major (yeah my spelling is crap, always has been - so sue me - doesn’t stop me getting the highest level qualification possible though albeit in Physics not English (oops there I go using big words again, the word albeit isn’t too big for you is it?).
Any way do you have any specific objections to what I’ve written (on the topic it issue), any specific points you wish to argue with me?
Well its been good being distracted from what I should be doing; now to get back to it (another eight hours of maths to go today, joy oh joy). Suspect I’ll be back here for another distraction soon.
PS Ive run this post through the spell checker, it found ten spelling errors but youll be pleased to know that they are all corrected now so there shouldnt be any left in it (apart from missing apostrophes - why do all my apostrophes get changed to question marks?)
Any way please let me know if you do find another spelling error preferably in your sarcastic tone if possible (after all spelling is so important to a T-man, its one of the lesser known side effects of testosterone; a pedantic obsession with spelling).
