Football player Albiol was asked why he would visit Austria again, outside the Euro Cup? And his answer was "to see the kangaroos"  . But to ruin the fun, later they said it was because he saw them in a zoo

But the pinhed can continue, I believe he was pointing how in the past low scores could just reflect a skeptical attitude about what they were told, right?

what I don't know is the use of it, apart from very intelligent people they say who could benefit from a different education proper for them. Trying to determine a score for the intelligence of people doesn't sound to me like the most intelligent of things to do
...but what can I say, I'm an artist and I'm hungry!

My friend Eccles telled me there are camels in London. He gave me this photo so I can remember that there are camels in London. I reckon my friend Eccles telled me right. You remember the piece of paper he gaved me what telled me what time it is? My friend Eccles knows things.

I askeded my friend Eccles what you said. He said who's this pinhead and what's he mean. He writted it down on this piece of paper so I wouldn't forget.

or maybe he was pointing how they just weren't familiar with the academic standards and the likes. You sound not familiar with it either

that is it, they were skeptical about the standards having something to say. That's their rejection, "How do you know there are no camels in Europe?"

but if you think it's proven nothing, how could something that's proven nothing be disproven? If it's proven nothing the matter is not settled because there's no matter; isn't that purely unscientific, to build theories that hold as much evidence as don't? (that match the facts as much as it could be any other thing?)
