64. Uh... I guess "Occam's razor" is a magic chant to them.
Or something like that.

"Occam's razor!"


(We said it's true therefore it's now true.)

Which I guess makes "Occam's razor!" the new "Open Sesame!"

But in the real world, as Shalom correctly points out, "Occam's razor" just means "the most straightforward answer." And even then you could be wrong.

Jesus. Do these people even try?
