Someone said - 'I'm using my new philosophy from now on, which is: "What
unlikely, usually is"!'

Perhaps just an elegant and user-friendly rephrase of an old
scientific/philosophical principle usually ascribed to one William of
Occam/Ockham (1285-1349) and commonly known as 'Occam's Razor'....

A great thread - many chuckles.
