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.

Are You Shaking?

I came across this story last Sunday after reading about the impending (though no one knows when) collapse of the Universe. I thought one that blames man's activities for earthquakes was more... well... interesting.

A "consultant geophysicist" (not sure what that is, exactly) named Christian Klose did a study of hundreds of earthquakes around the world and found 92 likely to have been caused by human activity. Activities such as "mining, reservoir construction and oil and gas extraction."

Scary, huh?
