    That’s the problem with Neolithic art; how will it look over the sofa, and how would you get it there in the first place.

    There’s a significant difference between “listening” and “hearing.” At my age, I can get away with saying, “Oh, I heard you well enough. I’m just ignoring you.”

    If you can’t destroy the institution, destroy it’s processes. It amounts to the same thing, in the end.

    That’s okay. It’s a cheap target.

    “It reminds us of all that once was good, and it could be again.” “So mote it be! So say we all for charity!” (from the oldest extant Freemason document, known as Regiuis Poem, c. 1390 AD).

    Reminds me of a prank several of us pulled in school many years ago. We concocted “The Ultimate Math Word Problem.” Alas I can’t remember it in it’s entirety but it went something like this.

    An airplane leaves San Francisco flying east to New York, with one stop in Chicago for refueling. A passenger train leaves New York travelling west and will stop in Chicago, St. Louis, Albuquerque, and Phoenix before arriving in Los Angeles. There are 130 passengers on the aircraft, and 450 passengers on the train. In Chicago, 25 passengers get off the plane and 15 other passenger get aboard. The train loses about 12 passengers per stop, but gains at least five to 10 new passengers. Both the plane and the train are on time, and have good weather. From this information, determine what happened to the chicken. Show your work.
