Quote of the day...

Quote of the day...  Spotted in the Ricochet Daily Shot:
“Those people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.”

Isaac Asimov
Awesome :) 

When I was a young lad, lo these many years ago, Asimov was one of my favorite authors.  I first ran into him with his science fiction, but a high school librarian mentioned to me one day that he also wrote a lot of non-fiction (which the library had).  That started me on a binge reading of his books on science, math, and technology – a fantastically accessible body of work that played a major role in developing my interest in those topics.  His books were perfect for someone like me who found the classroom too slow and basic, but who didn't have the background at the time for college texts.
