Quote of the Day

In memory of the man who gave us the "laser," Gordon Gould:

"If I were creating a world, I wouldn't mess about with butterflies and daffodils. I would have started with lasers, eight o'clock, day one!"

– Evil personified, in "Time Bandits"

(But could he give us sharks with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads?)

Gould passed away Friday. (via Ace.)

my personal favorite:
"God isn't interested in technology. He cares nothing for the microchip or the silicon revolution. Look how he spends his time, forty-three species of parrots! Nipples for men!"
