Instead of messing with color combinations and a decoder chart, I just use a label maker. Print the label twice without tearing it, then fold it over the cord. Voila! Named with whatever you like, legible on either side.

Although rabbits are lagomorphs, they are also huge party animals, and when their humans are out of the house they think nothing of having a few mice, rats, lemmings, jerboa, chinchillas, squirrels and porcupines over to "just chill" which invariably turns into a giant house party with a muskrat DJ.

I did not miss that. That is NOT the exact opposite. He said a consensus of EXPERTS in LAW would be necessary to make one lawyer's opinion more important than anothers. Then he provides a consensus of 15 self-expressed math experts? So math expert = lawyer?


To make the argument even MORE embarrassing, given his own data, one could easily assert:

"Depending on how you look at it, you may think that this opinion from Assistant District Attorney Dave Denny , vindicates the opinion of the English aficionados who voted that the defendant did violate the law. I think it's the other way around -- the fact that this answer was correlated in the survey responses with English ability, vindicates the opinion of Mr. Denny."

Exactly what I was thinking.

However, the best part was where he rejects the D.A.'s assertions because one expert should not be trusted if a consensus of experts does not agree. He then relies on the sole argument of "credentialed expert Mr. Rasch" to "vindicate" the opinion of the self-expressed math experts.

All that being said, I'd say the guy's not guilty according to what the law quoted.
