    "Oh, I'll just fix this computer after hours... should take me about an hour" = Four hours overtime! :P

    I have the best of both worlds. I'm salary AND overtime eligible. My company is awesome.

    I was presented with a problem.

    There are infinite potential hypotheses. If you falsify a set of these hypotheses, any arbitrarily large set, you still are left with infinite potential hypotheses. So how can you be getting any closer to the truth by doing so?

    I'm thinking the answer has to do with bounding the set of hypotheses.
