For example, I don't watch horror movies. It may be the best horror movie ever so it may be worth 5 stars but I am still not interested.
Or as low as 10% in published studies. The storied, btw, seem to have gotten significantly worse over the last few weeks. What's going on?
73% of all statistics are made up.
PS, if quantum photon tangler re-danglers are activated, let me know which light on the server indicates this and how i can check to make sure the tangler is launching fresh photons.
Well, we have designed it so that the photons will automatically light up. I am particularly proud of that design.
Unfortunately, we have not exposed them outside the box so you will not be able to see them from the outside.
However, we are working on software that will represent their state in a meaningful fashion.
Check my sig then. Unchanged since the mid '90s.

Hmmm... It lacks a reference to Soviet Russia.
Heck, Turkey, which is actually part of the EU, has a ever-so-slightly higher rate of evolution-rejectionism than even the US does. (Although it's the only country in the EU with more anti-science idiots than the US.)
Um, Turkey is NOT part of the EU.
Your caveats generally cover it for me. IANAS. Perhaps I see the world through too much of a programmer perspective but #4 is the only one that I care about.
If the results are consistent and repeatable by independent groups, does anything else matter?
It depends on what you mean by "...that this is real".
If you mean, "Can I build a propulsion drive based on this principle alone?", then I would need more.
If you mean, "This demonstrates that there is a something we don't currently understand that requires further investigation", just #4.
If you mean, "Can we use this to calculate the exact improbability of this being real?" then we could feed this into a finite improbability generator (still working on it) and use it to create an Infinite Improbability Drive. Then we wouldn't need all that tedious mucking about in hyperspace.
When a graphene sheet was placed on top of an atomically smooth sheet of yttrium iron garnet, the graphene borrowed the magnetic properties from the yttrium iron garnet and became magnetized without the need for doping.
I agree. I have had enough of hearing about all the doping scandals.
The last thing I need is news that my writing instrument is high on who-knows-what.
I can't wait to buy a pencil that will stick to my fridge without having to glue a magnet to it.
But can I use vi on it?
THAT is the question.
I use Vim Touch on my Android phone.
If it doesn't have VI, I am not interested.
