I try to read Asamov at least once a year.  My favorite quote of his is still: "Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent."

Not familiar with him. I do read Asimov, though. :P

"Dalton's records, carefully preserved for a century, were destroyed during the World War II bombing of Manchester. It is not only the living who are killed in war."

"Never let your sense of morals get in the way of doing what's right."

"Self-education is, I firmly believe, the only kind of education there is."

"The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' but 'That's funny...'"

I showed Lord T Hawkeye this video (also a Fav Quote in and of itself):


To which he responded with:  "I just stick with the simple one:  70% of women jack off, 90% of men do and the rest lie about it."
"When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world—'No. You move.'"
-Captain America, Amazing Spider-Man 537

Oh, apparently Coughland got banned over that video when it was flagged down for "inappropriate" content.

And there wasn't anything inappropriate in it at all; just a discussion of the statistics and what they mean.

I wonder who complained?

I think we would get a shorter list if we asked who would'nt do that.

I love The Onion's editorial cartoons.
I still remember the days when we in the states would mock Canadian Fiat $'s for being worth less than ours.

"@Wollff85 Do you apply this universally? When a black man robs a store, is it the responsibility of all black men to stand up and denounce that black man? Is it the responsibility of all men to take responsibility for the man who beats his wife? Must all Japanese denounce the Rape of Nanking merely by virtue of the land they were born on?

Why should individuals care about what random other individuals they have never met do? No one is responsible to defend or denounce anyone else."--Stargazer5781

Well, since we've been discussing Penn & Teller in another thread, I found this from Lord T Hawkeye, that made me smile:

"We should be skeptical of government but we shouldn't just make shit up."--Penn Jillette, on the 9/11 conspiracy theories(?)

And speaking of 9/11, I found out that JBC (the dude hawking the "Modern Physics is irrational" bullshit on this thread) is a 9/11 truther.
Why am I not surprised?
