razors

Elliott’s Obsidian Scalpel

Andrew revisits the philosophical razors we’ve previously discussed, but rather than a flaming laser sword, comes up with an obsidian scalpel. We put it to the test, which leads us to another of our favourite things – a scale.

At Sounding Board we love a good spectrum, so Andrew details his 4 levels of clown show and we inevitably end up going full “cockup vs conspiracy” with a discussion on how far psychopathy pervades The Cathedral, and organisations in general.

What makes a useful idiot a psychopath? Just ask Matt Hancock.

Elon Musk’s X is also on the agenda, as he lets the original de-platformed Alex Jones back onto Twitter. What does this mean for the economics of twitter and its advertisers, and why does Instragram do such a a better job with its adverts?

And finally, we revisit germ theory and talk about our personal experiences of just not getting ill through the winter.

Toby’s Razor

It’s time for a new razor. One that adequately describes the mantra of the crazy cock up theorists.

Andrew takes a new, more mathematical slant on showing how the recent tyranny couldn’t possibly be an accident, which leads us into a discussion of philosophical razors and other laws and observations from across the ages.

By the end we have two new razors and one new law – they might not make it into wikipedia, but are they any less worthy compared to the work of Hanlon?
