"Commonly in an argument from ignorance or argument from personal
incredulity, the speaker considers or asserts that something is false,
implausible, or not obvious to them personally and attempts to use this
gap in knowledge as "evidence" in favor of an alternative view of his or
her choice. Examples of these fallacies are often found in statements of
opinion which begin: "It is hard to see how...," "I cannot understand
how...," or "it is obvious that..." (if "obvious" is being used to
introduce a conclusion rather than specific evidence in support of a
particular view)"


P.S. "Every computer program in the world, BusyBox included, exceeds the
originality standards required by copyright law."

P.P.S. "Of course correlation implies causation! Without this 
fundamental principle, no science would ever make any progress."

(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can 
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards 
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
