This is science fiction? Goodness me how accurate the predictions can
be! Why, right here and now and for the past two entire generations
all we have got is "I don't know its not my fault I only work here",
and "Who the hell are you how would you know anyway."

On campus the version is just a tad more sophisticated, "How would we
know its policy and we can't get any funding", or "I'm gay its not my
fault the Lesbian Mafia are after me . . ."

He who refuses to qualify data is doomed to rant.
