Ever heard of Occams Razor?

Is that Gillette?

Applying the Occam's razor principle, isn't Occam's razor today a cheap Chinese knockoff, not an actual Gillette? 

Or it's too exotic so it proves Occam wrong, at least when talking about razors? 

 

In other words, Occam advises we always take the simplest answer as the most likely one, but what about us whose whole lives are made of exceptions to the rule of the most common? 

For example, a man is standing at our village bus stop at 6 AM, according to the Occam's razor it's a neighbour going to work, but it was a Japanese tourist who needed some advice on local transport - and I forgot to ask him if he likes hiking around in dawn or it was jet lag or something - and according to Occam neither of us really speaks much English, but if I may boast a little, weren't we both perfectly able to understand each other?

Or was he just being polite, as the Japanese so often are, in his restrained gestures and strained smile?

Oh, ****, what if you're right and due to our great English skills, he's tangled in razor wire somewhere in the forest in the no man's land on Slovenian border, waiting for border patrol to mistake him for an Afghan and unceremoniously toss him into Bosnia, assuming that's where he must have sneaked in from?

Have I got a flashlight? This is the house of paranoid control freaks, of course we have flashlights, and they all work (see, didn't I just tell you we're not exactly normal?), so, you called it, you go first, Slovenian border is that way *points tentacle, gives you a flashlight with the other, pushes you gently in the right direction with third, checks your pockets with the fourth* ... my god, woman, you have nothing useful in your pockets... all right, you just follow the trail up the mountain, it's clearly marked, the foxes are tame, the guy behind the tree is harmless but don't talk to him and I'm coming as soon as I make us some sandwiches - do you prefer mayonnaise or home-made vegetable spread?

Is it possible to have both mayonnaise and veggie spread in the same sarnie?

Absolutely, and I was going to add 'is that kosher?' question to my answer but it reminded me there's 'halal' certificate on the sugar I usually buy and how can I not rant now about silliness of 'certified halal' sugar? How exactly does one make 'haram' sugar? By adding lard in it? Who does that? So, what's the point of putting 'halal' certificate on sugar? Or it's like 'gluten free' for ME? Which reminds me I saw 'certified gluten free' ham and what the hell do they do with that ham if there's a chance it wasn't fracking gluten free? Roll it in flour? How's that kosher? Oh, yes, it's ham, so isn't that rhetorical question really? 

Anyway, are we ready? Flashlight, sandwiches, water, cat... what? All right, the cat is out of the bag, are we ready now?

Vegemite? Did you just put my home-made ajvar down to the same level with vegemite? 

What's that vegemite made of, anyway? Recycled motor oil? 

 

For those who wonder about ajvar, here's the video (it's in Serbian, but you need no verbal explanations really, you can see it all) so why not even trying to make it yourself?
