Matheology § 256

"If a cow is brown, and it cannot be checked that it is not brown; the cow
is brown." deep.............

(who painted the cow brown? And why is he no longer available to say that
cow was brown after he painted it ? why can no one even look (oo) at the
cow, to see if it is not brown? )

> just
>as a criminal policy is none the less criminal even if it cannot be
>checked by any? court that would curb it. [...]

"a criminal policy is criminal if it cannot be checked....."

"a cow policy is cow if it cannot be checked....."

This, this.. however, makes no scents at all ........ non-cents
