You’ve just given me the official name for something I once came up with as an example of what I would have called the magic amulet fallacy:

Nine out of ten wildlife biologists say that bear spray is effective in warding off bear attacks. (The tenth could not be contacted.)


The parts not being hit are cockpits, engines, wing fuel tanks, and fuselage control cables leading to the tail surfaces.


I've heard about this. I hadn't seen a picture associated with it but had read about the gathered visual evidence.

Significantly, the cockpit is white.

Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
