A few Douglas Adams quotes that seem appropriate to this blog

Here are a few Douglas Adams quotes that seem appropriate to this blog, to Doug, and to LANL.

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

If you don't change your beliefs, your life will be like this forever. Is that good news?

Capital letters were always the best way of dealing with things you didn't have a good answer to.

The two that seem to apply best to this blog are:

A computer terminal is not some clunky old television with a typewriter in front of it. It is an interface where the mind and body can connect with the universe and move bits of it about.

All it takes to fly is to hurl yourself at the ground... and miss.

To me, Doug, through this blog, hurled himself at the ground and missed.

Best wishes,

Eric
