In one of the early episodes of the British comedy series "Red Dwarf," the dead but hologrammatical Arnold Rimmer asks Holly (the ship's computer) to read some of the crew's confidential files to him, finally asking to have his own read back to him, during which Holly narrates the captain's observation that Rimmer "constantly fails the engineering exam."
"Constantly fails the engineering exam??", explodes Rimmer in annoyance, "I'd hardly call eleven times 'constantly failing'. I mean, if someone ate roast beef eleven times in their life, you'd hardly say that that person 'constantly ate' roast beef, would you?"
You can see the logical absurdity here -- whether something happening eleven times should be considered unusual depends, of course, on the event, which leads us to Blogging Tory "Neo Conservative", and his head-shakingly bizarre dismissal of the number of Taser-related deaths in Canada over the years:
There have been 16 taser related deaths in Canada over the last four years.
That works out to 4 instances per year... which, my paranoid friends, is statistically insignificant.
Quite right, Arnold ... I mean, Neo. Are members of Canada's law enforcement community regularly murdering people with Tasers? Oh, pish -- if someone eats roast beef four times a year, you'd hardly say that they're regular consumers of roast beef, now, would you?
Neo Conservative -- the Arnold Rimmer of the Canadian blogosphere.
P.S. For those of you who don't appreciate Neo's utter and overwhelming Rimmerness, well, here's a clip from the series, during which the crew of the Dwarf answer a distress call from a crashed Earth ship, on which the resident android assures them there are three remaining female officers, and Rimmer pleads with Lister to build him up at the impending meeting, and call him "Ace" and "Big Man" and go on and on about how Rimmer's had just tons of girlfriends and is incredibly brave, in order to impress the chicks.
