arguing with jeffr

I have this recurring pattern: jeffr IMs me and asks what's up, somehow I mention a paper I've read, and then he argues against it for the next hour. And even when I don't necessarily support the paper, since he's arguing against it I end up taking the author's position. This is sorta frustrating, but it also helps (just as a reading group does) with my understanding of a paper... so I think it's generally net positive.
