} Ah, finally a math problem with some meat to it. The answer is 12,
} but I sense that you do not believe me. I will provide a variety of
} arguments to choose from, so that there is no doubt as to my
} infailability.
}
} MATHEMATICAL ARGUMENT:
} The subdifferential of a west bound train at 4 p.m. is 13.7 times the
} Croissant index of the local bar exam. Therefore, given the standard
} argument, 12 lawyers will sue.
}
} RELIGIOUS ARGUMENT:
} 12 is correct. You must have faith or die, heathen pig.
}
} PHILOSOPHICAL ARGUMENT:
} 12, 20, or 1000. Does it really matter?
}
} ASTRONOMICAL ARGUMENT:
} According to our data, 12 is correct, within two orders of magnitude.
}
} ARCHEOLOGICAL ARGUMENT:
} In 1275 B.C., there was a crash between two ox drawn carts in the
} lower Sudan. Given a suitable translation of the Stickymud
} Manuscript, it was said that 12 laywers sued the drivers. Since modern
} culture is a derivative of the culture of that time, 12 laywers would
} sue today.
}
} ASTROLOGICAL ARGUMENT:
} 12 is the only truly perfect number. Everything has a twelve in it.
}
} STATISTICAL ARGUMENT:
} The last time there was a train wreck with exactly the same conditions,
} 12 laywers sued.
}
} INTUITIVE ARGUMENT:
} 12 just feels right. 11 is too few, and 13 is far too many.
}
} WEAK ARGUMENT:
} 12, please?
}
} STRONG ARGUMENT:
} TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE,
} TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE,
} TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE,
} TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE,
} TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE, TWELVE,
} TWELVE! Do you believe me now?
