Shush. This is not the place for logical deduction.

That's not how it works! Here's the correct thought process:

1) Decide on what your reasoning will conclude. It is very important to take this step before said reasoning
2) Come up with some approximation and/or numbers without understanding what they mean or in which situation they are applicable
3) Use the demonstration from point 2) to highlight you were correct in the assumption you made during point 1)

For example, say I want to prove that the Su-27 was not designed for dogfighting. That's easy, its size and weight are both in the same ballpark as the F-14, and larger than the F-15. Such an airplane clearly can not be agile because it is common sense that large aircraft are not maneuverable. Done. Easy.

Lol, that was a good laugh.

Unfortunately you get to see that same process so many times in life... yet it is so true...

No way. The doppleganger thing is definitely the right answer here. What were we talking about again?
