    I bet we could find a few earlier examples. Hobbes’ omnia contra omnes comes to mind.

    Tennyson and Darwin knew each other, so it’s obvious:

    Tennyson to Darwin to Hitler.

    Hmm, could there be a new game there similar to Bacon Numbers? Darwin/Hitler Numbers? DH Quotient?

    There is only one jump needed to go fom Darwin to Hitler (apparently), so we could use this method as a measurement of numptyness – a low Darwin/Hitler number would be an indicator of heavy numptification.

    They are so used to receiving preferential treatment that they tend to see equitable, even-handed, treatment as beneath their normal status. As actual discrimination. They get very offended at being treated the same as everyone else
