Occam’s razor (also written as Ockham’s razor and in Latin lex parsimoniae) is a principle of parsimony, economy, or succinctness used in problem-solving devised by William of Ockham (c. 1287–1347). It states that among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected. Other, more complicated solutions may ultimately prove correct, but—in the absence of certainty—the fewer assumptions that are made, the better.
So here is the story:
On Friday my GF had some street food as we returned from the mall. Naturally, I did not partake. After spitting out the bones and complaining about it, she then asked if she could get some more street food. I pointed out the spread of Typhoid fever through street food (which I have seen in an x GF). She then decided to eat at home.
That night she experienced stomach pains and back pains.
3 days later she informs me that she will be sending her clothes to her mother as she is still experiencing the pains.
“Why” I ask “because a ghost punched me in the back and stomache” she replies.
How do you argue with stupidity?
Tomorrow, I will take her to the clinic so we can use SCIENCE to diagnose the true issue.
Also, I find it funny that doctors are religious. Why not pray instead of prescriving medicine. If you are religious, why not practice blood letting? ugh!
“Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.”
