Quit Being So Selfish, We're Talking About *Me* Here...

As Liet Taught Us...

Spaced Out Looney
I am currently in medical school, and have taken a hiatus from updating my journal. I hope to resume posting about tv, film, books, music, and theater at some point in the not too distant future.


Nullem magnum ingenum sine mistura dementiae fuit.
(There has never been any great talent without an element of madness.)


The universe may be as great as they say, but it wouldn't be missed if it didn't exist.
-Piet Hein

Nothing in life is to be feared; it is only to be understood.
-Marie Curie

A little rebellion now and then is a good thing.
-Thomas Jefferson

He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you. - Nietzsche

First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me—
and there was no one left to speak out.

-Martin Niemöller

Science...cannot make value judgments: it cannot say, for example, that a painting or sunset is beautiful. And science cannot make moral judgments: it cannot say that war is immoral. It cannot even say that a river is polluted. Science can, however, analyze responses to a painting; it can analyze the biological, social, and cultural implications of war; and it can demonstrate the consequences of pollution. It can, in short, try to predict what people will consider beautiful or moral and it can provide information that may help them make value judgments or moral judgments about war or pollution. But the act of making the judgments is not itself science.
-William T. Keeton and James L. Gould, Biological Science

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
-Serenity Prayer, by Reinhold Niebuhr

Correlation does not imply causation.
-Scientific Principle

I am a compulsive liar.

Solamente cuando se haya envenenado el ultimo rio, cortado el ultimo arbol, y matado el ultimo pez, el hombre se dara cuenta que no puede comerse el Dinero.
(Only when the last river has been polluted, the last tree has been cut, and the last fish has been killed, will man realize he is not able to eat his money.)
