I use a Hypothesis test with 95% confidence and find that there is no statistically significant evidence, rejecting the null.
I'm sorry for this ridiculously stupid pun.

I come into this thread and leave a suggestion (not in the pile) that we quickly post our way through this entire page before it has a chance to blow up, and quickly leave the thread (until the next page)

I reject the suggestion, because I will attempt to fight to scourge of nomic from spreading to this thread, even if through subtler means.

the page EXPLODES.

there is now an exploded forum thread on the pile.
Um, this post feels devoid of content. Good luck?
For comparison, that means that if the cabbage guy from Avatar: The Last Airbender filled up his cart with lettuce instead, it would be about a quarter of a lethal dose.

I go to pick up the green paint and paint the pile with it, but instead I accidentally knock all the cans of paint from the shelf and onto the pile.

The evil megapenny has returned! (Did you believe that something as simple as spending the penny would be enough to get rid of it? I suspect that the bomb is a part of its plot to take over the world, too.)
