Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

Best Laid Plans?

NASA's Asteroid Mission Hopes to Prevent Large Scale Destruction

I have just a teeny weeny problem with the idea of bringing an asteroid close to earth. What if there's a little goof? What if, as happened once before, someone plans in metric and others use the US system? What if a miscalculation is made on the planned orbit of the asteroid around the moon?

Just sayin'

On the other hand.... at least someone is considering the possibilities.
