Das ist nicht nur nicht richtig, es ist nicht einmal falsch!

Sorry, Source Code, you lose 2 stars for the happy 'not-even-wrong' ending.

I was even with you all the way when you were merely absolutely impossible.

While I have my Grinch pants on, I'll have you know that I do not like Wikipedia's page for Not Even Wrong, which seems to rely on Peter Woit's interpretation of Pauli's quip. I would say that Pauli was describing a hypothesis that was unintelligible, or gobbledygook, whereas Woit wants to tie it exclusively to Popperian unfalsifiability. I'm not sure anyone really knows the exact circumstances (or whether he ever actually said it).
