Scientific Method

Key Questions

  • Answer:

    See this old answer....

    Explanation:

    And so an application of the scientific method. Have you ever lost your house keys or your car-keys (of course you have!). And so the scientific problem is defined....#"where are my £?""!&@ keys?"#

    And so we ask the questions...

    #"When did I last use them?"#

    #"To where did I go after that?"#

    #"Does the wife have them?"#

    #"Are they in my coat?"#

    ...and of course other questions are appropriate to ask given your personal circumstances. And while no-one can have a perfect memory, each time you ask a question, and potentially falsify it, you narrow down the true location of the keys....
