i think life sucks, then you get cancer, then your dog dies, your wife leaves you, the cancer goes into remission, you get a new dog, you get remarried, you owe ten million dollars in medical bills but you work hard for thirty-five years and you pay it back and then -- one day -- you have a massive stroke, your whole right side is paralyzed, you have to limp along the streets and speak out of the left side of your mouth and drool but you go into rehabilitation and regain the power to walk and the power to talk and then -- one day -- you step off a curb at sixty-seventh street, and BANG you get hit by a city bus and then you die. maybe. ~ denis leary

Richard L. Evans :slingshot: was a plagarizing hack. :omg: In the best of possible terms of course. :rotfl:

mystery;

we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be

for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised

incorruptible,

and we shall be changed.

Cynthia Kersey

 

Happiness is not a reward-it's a consequence. Suffering is not a punishment- it is a result

Robert Green Ingersoll

 

Experience should be a guidepost and not a hitching post.

And I'll end with one of Turtles favs, Benny Frank. So loved in the city of of Philadelphia there is a huge bridge connecting :o PA and NJ named after him and the Franklin Institute which has loads of creative and hands on experiments and recreations by him and his era. A great place to visit.

~Richard Dawkins

 

 

We humans are an extremely important manifestation of the replication bomb, because it is through us - through our brains, our symbolic culture and our technology - that the explosion may proceed to the next stage and reverberate through deep space.

Really reaching here, and I hope it's not taken the wrong way, but-

 

It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

It may be presumptuous of me to call you a friend, CC, but I do, and so be it. As I am usually stupid, I'd like to be stupid with you. What are your reactions to causal dynamical triangulations? It seems to me to be an elegant geometric approach to the problem of consolidating general relativity with quantum mechanics, but I am, as I previously stated, stupid. And if you know anything of ADSL splitters, I have questions there too :)

 

On a not necessarily related note, has anyone heard from Turtle lately? I'm concerned he might have ended up in someone's soup, though I pity the fool that tries to capture him.

You cannot run away from weakness. You must sometimes fight it out or perish; and if that be so, why not now, and where you stand.

To eat one must chew, to speak one must think.

Behave toward everyone as if receiving a great gift.

 

Confucius
