Sturgeons Law

Sturgeons Law has to be one of the best comebacks as well as one of the best Laws. But in our politically correct society, is Sturgeons Law correct? For those that don't know, here is Sturgeons Law

In the 1950's, the establishment were deciding whether sci-fi novels should be held to the same regard and acceptance as other forms of literature. Theodore Sturgeon was one of those for sci-fi novels. In a heated deabte, someone from the opposition declared that "90% of all sci-fi novels are crap."

To this, Sturgeon replied:

"Ninety percent of everything is crap!"

Do you agree? Do you agree that 90% of movies, books, sports, games and ultimately people are crap?

Well, considering 90% of everything Sturgeon said was crap, I don't really believe him.

Well, it really depends on whether you're talking about quantity.
To me? I don't really like any team sports, so yes, almost 95% of that is crap for me. I only like martial arts and chess (yes, chess is a sport). Around 80-90% of books and movies are crap, so yes. I should point out that this is all my opinion. Games are increasingly declining, so yes, it's all 90% crap at the moment. Perhaps it will improve in the future.

90% of things are crap 55% of the time. Of the time they're not, they're 45% effective in giving us something to do.

Throwing percentages around is pretty easy.

And no, I don't believe 90% of everything is crap. Maybe 50%, but not 90%. Too high IMO.

Well to follow the law you are basically stating that the law is true. So if 90% of what he says is crap, then the law itself is in the last 10%.

I might go into fractions later...
