You never really know, and never really are 100% correct... I've never known a measurement that doesn't have an error associated with it and I've never known a model that wasn't correlated to a measurement or a theory that wasn't confirmed by empirical evidence.

Only fools are certain, because certainty is an illusion humans create.

only thing i'm certain of is that i'll be cracking a cold one in T-minus 5,4,3,2,1 ahhhh
