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.

Random Musings for Thursday

Why I don't believe in the existence of UFOs:

You are telling me they traveled more than 10 light years just to abduct and probe a few individuals with histories of mental illness and to carve up some cows?

Why science sometimes mystifies me:

Language experts claim we all spoke a single language (calling it a "super language")  about 15 thousand years ago. "I", "we", and "to spit" seemed to have arrived to modern day intact.

Why technology is fascinating:

Google Glass intrigues me but I cannot afford a pair.

Stupid things governments do:

The FDA wants to put warning labels on tanning beds. I suppose that will deter those who think lizard skin is attractive. Ranks right up there with outlawing Big Gulp size sodas.
