Quotes of the day
Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.
All of the books in the world contain no more information than is broadcast as video in a single large American city in a single year. Not all bits have equal value.
But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
Knowing a great deal is not the same as being smart; intelligence is not information alone but also judgment, the manner in which information is collected and used.
To make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.
We've arranged a civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.
-Carl Sagan, (November 9, 1934 - December 20, 1996)

Quotes of the day
A woman who takes her husband about with her everywhere is like a cat that goes on playing with a mouse long after she's killed it.
Addresses are given to us to conceal our whereabouts.
All decent people live beyond their incomes; those who aren't respectable live beyond other people's; a few gifted individuals manage to do both.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
I always say beauty is only sin deep.
I think she must have been very strictly brought up, she's so desperately anxious to do the wrong thing correctly.
In baiting a mouse trap with cheese, always leave room for the mouse.
Never be a pioneer. It's the Early Christian that gets the fattest lion.
People vote their resentment, not their appreciation. The average man does not vote for anything but against something.
Poverty keeps together more homes than it breaks up.
There is no outlet for demonstrating your feelings towards people whom you simply loathe. That is really the crying need of our modern civilization.
Women and elephants never forget an injury.
You can't expect a boy to be vicious unless he's been to a good school.
-Saki (H.H. Munro) (December 18, 1870 - November 13, 1916)
(The memory of my high school English teacher's reading of Saki's "Sredni Vashtar" still sends chills down my spine. If audio books had been around then, my teacher- Ira Handelsman- could have made a killing.)

The firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail address is now something other than email@example.com saga.
kgbreport.com used to be kgb.com until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up kgb.com and adopting kgbreport.com created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the kgb.com domain name in 1993, and had since that time used firstname.lastname@example.org as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that email@example.com was no longer firstname.lastname@example.org but rather email@example.com which is longer than firstname.lastname@example.org and more letters to type than email@example.com and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than firstname.lastname@example.org but actually just as functional as email@example.com? I sent e-mails from the firstname.lastname@example.org address to just about everybody I knew who had used email@example.com in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the firstname.lastname@example.org change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which email@example.com was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for firstname.lastname@example.org would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that email@example.com no longer is the firstname.lastname@example.org they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. email@example.com. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
