  •  Ever boil a frog? (3+ / 0-)

    This is a perfect example: NO ONE who has any experience with frogs whatsoever is going to tell you that you can "convince" a frog to sit still in any pan of water, be it hot or cold, unless you put a lid on it, which sort of ruins the parable. If you put ten frogs in ten pans of cold water in your kitchen, in no time at all you'd have water and frogs jumping all the hell all over the place.

    Yet - this keeps getting repeated, over, and over. and over... it's common knowledge? Common sense?!? Even people who know about frogs keep repeating this crap. Question everything, not just authority....
