The requirement of evidence to back your claim does not disappear because it hurts your feelings, reality does not care about your feefees.

This is a great coeteris paribus. For every variable you can almost always find another that correlates by chance. The results can somewhat be astonishing.

Imagine this:
- Increase in the sale of ice creams
- Increase in murder rates
- Therefore, ice creams cause murders
It's amazing what you can do as an economist

I fucking KNEW it!!!! Angry

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta
