I like that one. Especially because I can totally see it working that way in my social circle, irrespective of language. Makes me want to contrive a grammaticalization of bayesian logic or something like that. Some excuse for making it easier to say "update probability distribution on infinitesimal priors" than to say "find out everything you know is wrong". Sadly, I haven't done much conculturing in years, which leaves me rather lacking in ideas of what would be especially insulting to speakers of my artlangs. -l.
