A Pascal Quote

“Can anything be stupider than that a man has the right to kill me because he lives on the other side of a river and his ruler has a quarrel with mine, though I have not quarrelled with him?” - Blaise Pascal

No, Blaise, nothing can be stupider than that. Indeed, I think it is safe to say that the human race, in the centuries since your day, has found a variety of new ways to be stupid, and has improved its implementation of the way you mention, but hasn't founder any thing stupider. 

Nice triangle, by the way.

Three Greeks Walk Into a Bar

So ...

 here's a thought.

Three classic Greeks walk into a bar.

The bartender, Heraclitus, recognizes Thales and of course pours him a glass of water, because water is everything.

Then he recognizes Zeno and said: "Aha! so motion must be logically possible even if your path into this bar was infinitely divisible."

But he doesn't recognize the third fellow and he says to Zeno "Who's your friend?"

"Euripides."

"I didn't rippa those tunics, you guys must have ripped them yourselves!"
