  2. A quandary indeed.

    And opposite equals accomplish nothing. ;)

  4. Indeed, equal and unequal when pulling equally, mean one remains stationary. God is sulking. He is not in his heaven, but I can see no evidence that he is down here either.

  5. Great comparisons. I especially like the words of William of Occam's Razor. It is so easy to fool ourselves into over complicating things.

  6. I've always loved Occam's Razor. I've also always loved Sherlock Holmes's version of it: Eliminate the impossible and whatever is left, however improbable, is the solution.

  8. I had a chemistry professor ask me one time if I was greater than or equal to my lab partner who was a football player who weighed 200 pounds more than I. I looked the professor in the eye and said "No man is greater than another, but a woman is always greater tha a man." He passed me.
