A quick thought...

This poster I spotted the other day in Williamsburg from The Positive Affect project just fits in so well.

The New York Times had a great article about Bill Nye the Science Guy on Tuesday that I really loved. I mean, what a cool effing dude. Since reading it, I've been spending the afternoon listening to interviews and such while I work. I mean, his comments on Creationism are the ultimate. Love it. I forget sometimes how super freaking awesome science is and how much I love to learn and to think. Although I never ever forget how much I love to read. Perhaps I should incorporate some non-fiction into the mix though... Somewhere buried in the comments on the Bill Nye article, someone posted this quote from Isaac Asimov (another one of my favorites), 'There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge".' It's so vitally important to learn and to think and to be curious and to follow that curiosity and to not be sidetracked by your own arrogance and I need to always remember that. Some of what's been going on in my head on this Thursday afternoon...
