Re: 1102: "Fastest-Growing"

There is no such thing like a "strenght-o-meter" for belief. Do. Or do not. There is no try. :roll: Yes there is. It's measured in mountains that your belief could move. Most humans' beliefs barely get any higher than 30 centi-alps. I just finished rereading Good Omens for the first time ...

Re: "Study" discussion

This could be either a scientific study or a kidney-harvesting scam. Or both. We don't know. And that's the best part.
