Kenneth Miller[edit]

He's qualifying the expert under Federal Rule of Evidence 702. Look at Daubert and Kumho Tire. This is going to come off as unpleasant but I really don't mean it to: I wouldn't spend more than the 30 seconds I did reading laymen analyze a federal court trial transcript.

Nobody's stopping you writing things for yourself. Peter mqzp 04:29, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
And yes, it is laypeople writing for laypeople. Obviously "legal experts writing for laypeople" would be better, but you do the best with what you have available. VOXHUMANA 04:31, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
I regret commenting. You're right. Nobody's stopping me from writing things for myself. I do it for a living. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 04:34, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
Apologies for my ignorance Nutty, but is your background in law? If so, even if you don't have time to get fully involved in this project, it would be great if we could ask you questions along the way. VOXHUMANA 04:37, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
When laymen interpret court transcripts for laymen? Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 22:46, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
Yes and yes. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 22:52, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

NR vs. PC[edit]

Yeah, don't think you're going to get anywhere there. Good call on the revert. L'homme de la Perspective Discusez? 08:38, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, Nutty was drunk, nothing more to it than that. Peter mqzp 08:39, 31 March 2013 (UTC)
Look at her talk page, champ. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 14:41, 31 March 2013 (UTC)


I started to realize that. I did it in response to the Inquisitor Behrenstein he created. I did realize that visibly, my user name was exactly the same his, so I should do something to tone it back, like not having a full transclusion of his talk pages, seeing as that would be seriously confusing. I wasn't intended to be problematic. –Inquisitor Sasha (Talk | contribs | block) 03:06, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

You shouldn't need to start to realise that, it should be obvious from the beginning. Maybe you should work on being less impulsive? Peter mqzp 03:35, 1 April 2013 (UTC)

In answer to your question:[edit]

Norway has a rather nice infrastructure. Captain Swing (bringer of nachos) 05:17, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Do the Scandinavian countries have to win every "nice country" contest? Peter mqzp 05:19, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
I imagine they're terrible places if you hate snow. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 05:22, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
Well, aside from the snow, I think they do. Norway is also one of the most Democratic nations according to the Global Democracy Index and the number one nation for the Human Development index. Honestly, why bother living anywhere else? Captain Swing (bringer of nachos) 05:24, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
Honestly, why bother living anywhere else? Because we like sunlight in January? :) VOXHUMANA 05:43, 4 April 2013 (UTC)


Big finhgers, small tablet Scream!! (talk) 23:05, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

It happens all the time, even with a mouse. (Or maybe I'm just that clumsy...) Peter mqzp 23:08, 11 April 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the catch[edit]

Any particular reason NR is being so...well, Nutty? Captain Swing (bringer of nachos) 04:43, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

I don't have any insights into his current state, but I will say that if Nutty stopped being Nutty then he wouldn't be Nutty any more (if that helps). Peter mqzp 04:47, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
:P Captain Swing (bringer of nachos) 04:50, 27 April 2013 (UTC)
I do what I can. Peter mqzp 05:00, 27 April 2013 (UTC)


do it. I got distracted and made a hash up of it. Acei9 09:37, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

I think that's it fixed. New-style moving is confusing. Peter mqzp 09:41, 6 May 2013 (UTC)

Username change request[edit]

Nobody is keeping an eye on RationalWiki:Requests to change username, so I'll ask you directly. Current username is stupid and I'd like to have it changed to Lola Lazerface. The original Lazerface may have become a goddamn idiot after the first album, but the name's still cool as hell. Thank you. You're a beautiful human being and don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise. I mean, provided you do this. WF Lizardbrain (talk) 19:51, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

How is that username less stupid that your current one? (talk to a) nai:ɪlɪst/ 20:04, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
Done. Peter mqzp 20:23, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
Peter, you're a prince. Nihilist, you're a peach. Lola Lazerface (talk) 21:40, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Important Announcement[edit]

THE WIKIPEDIA GUY IS BACK!! -- (talk) 03:57, 25 May 2013 (UTC)


Could you please re-demote me? You can see here how he accused me of lying about having assburgers (I try to be positive about it), which I have the same reaction as him to. No, even worse, he's not the one who as it. Vergeltung (talk) 05:40, 16 June 2013 (UTC)

I should point out that the "I disagree" was to your statement that it was uncalled for. I suggest that you find somebody else to re-demote you, as I'm not convinced that it's necessary. Peter mqzp 05:42, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
Why would that be? Vergeltung (talk) 05:45, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
I could have blocked the spammer that just showed up. Vergeltung (talk) 05:47, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
That's not really a skill that's in high demand. Point is: you're annoying people, and your use of sysop powers isn't helping. Peter mqzp 05:53, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
How about I work on a few articles in my userspace, and if I can get them to a good length. While I realize that I have problems I need to work on, I would like to say that "annoying" in some cases seems to be disagreement. We should avoid groupthink, though I'm not suggesting that's a major problem. That's MarcusCicero's job. We seem to have a pretty diverse crowd, though sometimes there seems like there's a problem of groupthink, occasionally. Vergeltung (talk) 05:59, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
For one thing, I'm IP blocked, which is ignored for demoted users. Vergeltung (talk) 06:30, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
You can do that, if you like. Peter mqzp 06:35, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
Are you referring to working on articles? Vergeltung (talk) 06:59, 16 June 2013 (UTC)
