there is a long history of woo-like offerings in biogeography.  hell biology in general. but in general its only woo when you can't tear it down with data.  this tearing down has actually happened in biogeography with the demise of all the land bridge theories floated to explain disjunct distributions of monophyletic groups.

both panbiogeography and vicariance have been guilty of the sin of woo.  but not always.  it seems to me that our napkin calculating friend here may be attempting to avoid the sin, but it is hard for me to tell when there are gems like this here sprinkled liberally throughout.

Linguists, attention.  Please explain just what in the fuckity hell all this is 'posed to mean.

But this position ignores the plesioempirical allotropy
interlocutionally attributed to, and intersubjectively retrodicted by,
the metahistorical and and oligocontinually algorithmic paracosm.
This in itself renders your position not merely contrapositivist, but
virtually devoid of historicogrammatical nuance.

cause, uh, hell i don't know what the shit he is on about there.

These words could be completely rearranged and it wouldn't change the meaning at all. It's literary white noise.

that's the way i feel when i try to talk spanish.

to be fair to the first wingnut, this quote came from a section on his webpage that apparently had the wizard setup script still in place.  The column heading?  Stuff you don't want to show on your web page.

yeah.  wtf.  i caught the whiff of a finch like odor poking around there, but it was too much like Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  either those people are geniuses (or genies) with a communication-PR problem, or they are nut-so.  even just to make that shit up you got to be off by a little bit.

if you go to that link where the gibberish is posted, there is some stuff by the author of the web page on down about halfway in the biogeography section.

it doesn't make much more sense than that though.  but hey croizat was a loony fucker too.
