A bunch of query marks? Dead links? I give up.

Yeah, Telstra and Android. What a winning combination.

Please hold, editing in progress.

What defines the tableness of a table?

Oooh ooh ooh! I know this!

Actually, this was exactly my point in a course I ran last year for developing film and tv shows (albeit one of my examples was somewhat racier).

Archetypes, me old mucker. We all have em, and none of us can explain how!

I see three decorations. The "tableness" or the "decorativeness" of each does not lie in the objects you are looking at, even though each has properties required to conform to our perception of what they are.

Burden of proof is the obligation on somebody presenting a claim to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing "side" to show the evidence presented is not adequate. If claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.

History isn't written by the victors. It's written by the people with the time machines.
