  • You cannot take off from the ground simply by running and jumping - you need wings".
  • You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it. (Harper Lee)

  • Gillard's Carbon Tax --> "To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."~Thomas Jefferson
  • People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. (George Orwell) Bring on our Rough Men please! Why do our politicians say so little about people being shot on Australian streets? Don't most normal Australians find it objectionable? I would have thought we should be spending as much money as we do in Afghanistan eliminating our own scum who carry and use guns publicly in Australia. Can we get just a little bit of outrage from our leaders please? Can we at least say it's a bad thing?

  • The fundamental problem of communication is that of reproducing at one point either exactly or approximately a message selected at another point. Frequently the messages have meaning; that is, they refer to or are correlated according to some system with certain physical or conceptual entities. (Claude Shannon)
  • Claude Shannon must have been one of the most influential persons of our age. Comparing him and Steve Jobs would be like comparing God with Darwin. What an absolute gift to mankind - thank you!
