Interesting observation

Posted 30 Mar 10 by Tatyana
 As I was editing my paper draft, I realized something which was probably told to me a long time ago: every time I use the phrase "Z is interesting”, I have no ideawhy it’s interesting, much less important. "Interesting” is a cop-out for when I have no idea why you should care about Z. So I’m forcing myself to take all the instances of that word out of the paper and replace it with something more meaningful. If I find a place where it actually is appropriate, I’ll let you know. But I doubt it.
