Theory vs. Practice[]

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice they are different.[1][2]

Hypothesis vs. Theory[]

Most of what I do in the Fan Forums is speculation, conjecture and hypothesizing. If any of that becomes theory it will be because comic pages that haven't been written yet will verify the speculation to be immutable fact in the context of the GG story and canon. I am nonplussed and surprised that everything here gets labeled a theory.

The name comes from a combination of roles of a favorite actor. Both characters were madboys of the first order.
