"I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth."

I appreciate people who are civil, whether they mean it or not. I think: Be civil. Do not cherish your opinion over my feelings. There's a vanity to candor that isn't really worth it. Be kind.

Cecil Beaton

I know a lot of people that need to "get behind" that one...

Asteroid and comet impacts: the ultimate environmental catastrophe.
Morrison D.

Working Group on Near Earth Objects, International Astronomical Union 14660 Fieldstone, Saratoga, CA 95070, USA.

Cosmic impacts represent the most extreme class of natural hazards, combining a very low probability of occurrence with a capability of killing hundreds of millions and destabilizing global civilization. Fortunately, these disasters are amenable to precise prediction and even (in principle) can be avoided entirely by appropriate application of space technology. However, impacts take place so rarely that they have only recently been recognized as a significant natural hazard. Concerted international action to deal with impacts depends on increased public awareness.

~It was the best of times,
it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom,
it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief,
it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light,
it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope,
it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us,
we had nothing before us; we were all going directly to Heaven,
we were all going the other way.
`A Tale of Two Cities` ~ Charles Dickens~

~Wise men don't need to prove their point.. men who need to prove their point aren't wise~
`Lao Tsu

~Our greatest glory is not in never falling,
but in rising everytime we fall~

~The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing~
~You cannot do a kindness too soon, because you never know how soon it will be too late~
~Rejoice when you perform the virtues, but do not become exalted, lest, arriving at the pier, you suffer a shipwreck~
`Venerable St. Nilus of Sinai`
