True story: First real job some buddies and I bought tickets outside stadium went inside found ppl sitting in our seats. The serial numbers our tickets matched theirs except ours had an “R”. It stood for re-issue. They were season ticket holders who had their tickets stolen in a robbery. That’s how I discovered they have a holding cell in football stadiums. We were detained but not charged. Buyer beware…

There’s another quote from that same book I think that is appropriate given the level of discussion here……..“Shut up, he explained.”
“I want to pause here and talk about this notion of consensus, and the rise of what has been called consensus science. I regard consensus science as an extremely pernicious development that ought to be stopped cold in its tracks. Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled. Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had.
Let’s be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus.
There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.”
“The planet is not in peril. … I believe there is no climate crisis.” — Dr. John Clauser, 2022 Nobel Prize laureate in physics in a recent speech.
