Airport musings

"You have very little chance of getting at the truth, if you know in advance what the truth ought to be." -- Spencer (Robert. B. Parker).

Advice which many in the field need not. They massage their results until they arrive where they expected to, and they get cited for it.

So here I am sat in an airport waiting lounge. Was somewhat disappointed to find that either the arXiv hadn't updated on time, or that this place was refusing to refresh its cache, so I can't read the new abstracts. Meh.
