Sometimes the comment thread is the best part about blogging for The Guardian:
The ultimate accolade.
I am so confused now.
Also, I’m not proud of Bieber. I say that as a capital-C Canadian.
Wait – I’m confused. Does this mean Justin Beaver Bieber:
(a) is a singer?
(b) does Singing?
(c) trolls himself on science blogs?
(d) is fast becoming the next Godwin’s law?
To be honest, I think it’s rather flattering to be compared to someone so high-profile. Does this mean I’m going to do better at getting grants because I’m in everyone’s face?
If these comments in the Guardian show anything, it is that Sturgeon’s Law is alive and well BTL. It is the very poor S/N ratio that made me largely give up on reading CiF; thankfully OT’s S/N is much higher.
I thought Justin Bieber was a nineteenth-century philosopher until I discovered Martin Buber.
