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.

Uh oh ... did you see this?  " Did the sight of a man apparently soaring through the air on bird-like wings fill you with a childlike sense of wonder? Well, we hate to tell you this, but it's a hoax. Gizmodo
suspected as much, so it asked the guys at Industrial Light and Magic
to take a look. The crappy video quality immediately raised the ILM
team's suspicions, as did the dodgy physics, and the surreal steadiness
of the supposed head camera. After obsessively poring over the video for
a while, they found some tell-tale proof . . ."

You can read more about it on newser or gizmodo. So, are you buyin' it, or not?

 Bummer, dude. I suspected something was amiss when he flapped his wings to take flight rather than be towed... still, I wanted to believe. Must have been my early in life exposure to Peter Pan.
