Separating Explanation and Fact

This picture was taken today of the plant in my office.  It is alive and growing.  Lots of green leaves.  Yet, it certainly doesn't look healthy. 

I tweeted today (@jenniferdavis) that it appeared to have gained consciousness and is attempting to leave the confines of the pot.  In fact, the leaves appears to be crawling along the carpet to make their escape!

But that is an explanation.  And with any explanation, it is only a theory.  Others can have other explanations.  What do you think is going on?

The only thing that is known is the fact that the plant is bent over.

It is a good thing to remember in other contexts.  Make sure that in your effort to diagnose problems, assist others, or be witty, that we don't confuse explanations with facts.
