    I love facts but I've got a terrible memory so I normally make some vague approximation of them to people and hope nobody notices

    But it's basically the same idea right? Basically you somehow ascribe numerical values to things and then come up with rules for changing those values and then you can argue that x after you've done f to it is better than y after the effect of g. Problem is that the original valuation always has at least some element of arbitrariness as far as I can tell.
