teh Learnage

Update: (New Pic- that headline greeted me on MSNBC)

"Man seeks knowledge as the lemming seeks the ocean, instinct provoking self destruction."
Me - 1988.

From Mostly Harmless:
"Protect me from knowing what I don't need to know. Protect me from even knowing that there are things to know that I don't know. Protect me from knowing that I decided not to know about the things that I decided not to know about. Amen."

That's it. It's what you pray silently inside yourself anyway, so you may as well have it out in the open.'

'Hmmm,' said Arthur. 'Well, thank you-'

'There's another prayer that goes with it that s very Impor-tant,' continued the old man, 'so you'd better jot this down, too. You can never be too sure.

"Lord, lord, lord. Protect me from the consequences of the above prayer. Amen."

And that's it. Most of the trouble people get into in life comes from missing out that last part.'

"Y'see- you can't be evil if you're just a dumbfuck-"
"No,no,no. Bullshit, bullshit! Most evil bastards ARE dumbfucks, but they are dumbfucks that are armed with just enough knowledge and power to make 'em fucking dangerous! Dumbfuck that he is, he isn't half as much of a dumbfuck as he puts on. He's smart enough to not want you to know just how evil he is."
2008, contemplating the State of the Union and man in charge.
Help me Jesus, I'm having shameful thoughts about a machine !
Proverbs 1:22 How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? For scorners delight in their scorning, And fools hate knowledge."
Philippians 1:9 "And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight"
