Blogging Errors and Physics

Ah, the crossing of blogging and science!

Cosmic Variance has a clever analysis of Glenn Reynolds stupid suggestion that invading Saudi Arabia and Iran would cause good things to happen.

Essentially, by positing five wrong ideas in four declarative statements, Reynolds seems to have achieved a "new state of wrongness" equivalent to "crossing the Chandrasekhar Limit", which may cause his blog to collapse in on itself, with unpredictable results.

Sounds dangerous. Should we hope Doctor Who shows up to save the universe?
