How absurd! (Though I will agree that no brain was used in the
formulation of your statement.

By your measure, the guy that harvests the potatoes is
automatically the better cook!

Come on, Wendy, data is data. The guy collecting the data
doesn't inherently have an "edge" over someone else in terms of
being "right" or "wrong". Perhaps someone like Bruce might be
able to claim expertise in photo analysis, but that has nothing
to do with whether or not he even collected the data in the
first place! He could look at someone else's data a draw a
conclusion that might be more informed than someone that doesn't
know squat about photo analysis. You're confusing effort with
expertise.

The lengths you are going to try and un-ring the bell are highly
amusing, Wendy.
