Elisha - good points.  I haven't brushed up on my stats in awhile.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

Sure.  Additionally, one of my stats profs back in college said that that a sample size of 2 was fine (or multiple samples of n = 2) for a population that was shown to be normally distributed.

Of course, can we say that the assertion "all empires will fall" or "all decadent empires will fall" has a) a normal distribution, or b) a sample size large enough to make the claims significant?
