How to detect BS

By Derek

Scott has a great post on how to tell when someone is bullsh*tting you. My favorite:
A good thought holds together. Its solid conceptual mass maintains its shape no matter how much you poke, probe, test and examine. But BS is all surface. Like a magician’s bouquet of flowers, it’s pretty as it flashes past your eyes, but its absence of integrity become obvious when you hold it in your hands. Anyone creating BS knows this, and will tend towards urgency. They’ll resist reviews, breaks, consultations or the suggestion of sleeping on decisions before they’re made.
Hmmm. Pretty much describes the porkfest crap sandwich we were all just served, eh?
