Question [15 Jul 2009|10:23am]

My Au Bon Pain coffee cup started leaking on the train this morning, between Kendall/MIT and Charles/MGH -- minutes after I had consciously decided not to buy the $3.99 travel mug. Karma, or clever corporate plot?

Specialization is for insects [15 Jul 2009|02:45pm]

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

-- Robert Heinlein
