Srsly, how many counter-factual mathematical tractibility assumptions are you allowed to make before we conclude you are making this shit up.
I thought Bykowsky & Sharkey could not possibly top this paper on licensed v. unlicensed as the epitome of awfulness. But this is worse. It's like the Eye of Argon, but with math!
I have a jr lawyer with a BA in math who came to me to explain that she could not understand how Bykowsky and Sharkey got their numbers. To which I replied: you are right. That is because, despite making numerous tractibility assumptions and imposing artificial limitations to make a solution possible -- they still have to make shit up.
