Some rules of thumb I tweeted about recently:

1. If someone tells you something is impossible and you can't do it, it probably
can be done.

2. If someone tells you something will *surely* never happen, it likely can

3. If someone tells you are an idiot and are definitely wrong, then you
probably uncovered an https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elephant_in_the_room and
you are right. Also see

In general, people who are sure of themselves are probably wrong, as I am not
even sure of the Aristotlean Logic
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aristotle#Logic ) which got us incredibly far.
