A humour piece I saw a while back - With the phrase '8 out of 10 scientists say' you just have to find the right 8 scientists.
Time Cube Law and talk page discussions
How does the TC law apply to discussions on wiki talk pages?
Not the 'sequence of (42) discussions - someone "do" an archive' which happens regularly, but the 'excess of colon-indent and (reset) exchanges (sometimes on the WP Main Page talk page over 'so what, it will be gone in a day so it is not The End Of Civilisation As We Know It' topics).

Saying that probability "increases exponentially" in this context is mathematical nonsense and is a cargo-cult attempt at appearing intelligent through use of jargon that the writer does not really understand (misuse of "exponentially" being a very common example of this). It would be more correct to say "the likelihood of the author not being a lunatic decays exponentially" or "the likelihood of the author being a lunatic approaches 1 asymptotically". — Unsigned, by: 18.104.22.168 / talk / contribs
Perhaps this should get a mention here? After all, the present-day Internet vastly accelerates the process of publishing, replicating, and mutating bullshit, while the filter bubbles and echo chambers it fosters ensure further obstructions to debunking attempts.
