    @Graham, I read your piece and loved it.

    It was all good but I think my favorite phrase was the Oxymoron Criteria! :lol::lol::lol: :rofl:

    Now I'll never get angry when I read about an old study using the Oxford Criteria. I'll just mentally replace that with Oxymoron Criteria. :D

    As @Graham 's friend, I have reviewed the paper, and I simply conclude: for those who appreciate these things, the trial is a thing of beauty.

    Macavity should be a supporter of this research, unless, of course, he has retired from it. You know the line
