Save a SeAL, club a liberal 'think uhh'

With your mind as high as Mt. Fuji you can see all things clearly. And you can see all the forces that shape events; not just the things near to you. -Miyamoto Musashi

There is a clear attempt to establish truth not by scientific methods but by perpetual repetition.
- Richard S. Lindzen, Ph.D. Professor of Meteorology, MIT

When you can't make them see the light, make them feel the heat  - R. Reagan

There are two types of people in this country; those who provide freedom and those who enjoy it. MM says...

MICHAEL DUFF: "Physics tend to be dictated by fad and fashion. There are the gurus who dictate the direction in which new ideas grow. It was a very lonely time in many ways. When I tried to get graduate students interested many of them would say well look, you may be right and you may be wrong, but if I work in super gravity I'm not going to find a job."

Let's be clear: the work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus... - Michael Crichton

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane - Marcus Aurelius
