No I wasn't grasping at straws. I was defeating a poor scientific argument 
through standard scientific means, but you didn't realise that did you? The 
trouble is you just looked at the figures. I looked at what the figures meant 
and looked at what changing them slightly would do to the results. 
The data didn't support the argument well. What did you expect? I think the 
problem is that you believed it did. Try putting your figures through some 
statistical tests.
