The Unfact™ Of The Week.

The Unfact™ is, to the best of our knowledge, completely false and unsupportable. We are not responsible for any consequences that are bound to occur if you are silly enough to believe it.

“In science, ‘fact’ can only mean ‘confirmed to such a degree that it would be perverse to withhold provisional assent.’ I suppose that apples might start to rise tomorrow, but the possibility does not merit equal time in physics classrooms.”

"Jive" and its variants should be reintroduced to our vernacular, especially "jive turkey". The Management urges you all to use this word in daily speech.

Some examples to practice with:

"Don’t jive me, fool!"

"That’s no jive, my man."

"Back off, you jive turkey."

Get to work, you flock of jive turkeys!

"Solid" would be a good idea too.
