toward a general theory of zapitivity

Great cartoon reposted by Drek on the difference between "scientist" and "normal person" (link). Only I think Drek's conclusion about it is not correct. The "scientist" would not repeat the task a dozen times; instead, after the second or third, the question would change to "I wonder if it would still happen if I [insert slight variation here]."

Dan also links to this cartoon, with his own elaboration.

We will see if you are a scientist or 'normal' when it comes time to remove your sofa from Cambridge apartment.
