Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal by Zach Weinersmith for November 08, 2016
If anyone objects to this marriage, let them speak now. That's not a statistically sound approach to making objections! Objection isn't binary! It's a spectrum. If you asked everyone in this church, we'd probably each have some level of objection between zero and a hundred. By forcing us to make a choice between yes-objection and no-objection, you're tilting things in favor of the marriage going forth! Really, you should get a distribution of everyone's objections, then see how far we deviate from the typical marriage-objection distribution. If anyone's objection to this marriage is greater than one Sigma, speak now! Very well. The marriage may proceed.
