No scorn for science. Scorn for semi-scientists that are satisfied with an answer for a problem that isn't really paid too much attention to by real science, and accepting the debate as over. Science is awesome; but like religion, the problem tends to lie with human agenda.
Tho it is a bit hard to actually get what you are saying. So, an apple when dropped can 'choose' to fly upwards? Is that where you are going? I mean, yes, I spose one day that could happen, there are some scientific trains of thought that allow for that possibility. Just like it IS possible for all the air molecules to end up on one side of the room only. Luckily for us that is a rare event eh?!
lol, no, don't mean any of those things obviously. Funny tho
Not sales brochures, flim flam pseudo marketing speak (clean those quantums), but actual evidence of true audibility of cables. As you correctly hint in your answer, it must be science based and evidence based, in other words it seems we agree on the need to ignore anecdotal sighted evidence from any old JAIB on the net.
If you currently have nothing other than your own personal experiences to recount, I know (per your sig and answer) that you will agree with me that it accounts to not even a hill of beans, so what is your time frame to sit down with others and do a rigorous test and present us with the findings?
I am now glad that you stick by your sig, looking forward to your test.
I admit that my evidence is based on my personal testing, using processes to defeat what I perceive as my own personal bias. I have done this with others that have their heads firmly screwed on straight, and have been satisfied, surprised, and shocked at many of the results. As these tests were for our edification, professional education, and entertainment, regrettably I didn't retain notes over the years to satisfy the need to win an internet pissing match. That said, I have no desire admittedly to revisit testing that I am already satisfied with. Clearly, I believe in the results, otherwise my admittedly terse language would not be necessary.
It's just very tough when people with probably questionable social skills and presentation would propose to question your intelligence, experience, and knowledge of yourself and your close friends and colleagues - painting them as idiots, charlatans, and ignoramuses. Many of these people are respected in their fields, and their clients and colleagues respect their professionalism and honesty. These are all things that would deserve and earn a world-class beatdown in the world, so on the one hand it deserves a chuckle; on the other hand, making people crazy with words is the internet equivalent of a monkey slapping. Equally satisfying without spending the night in the bin.
