"Reliable sources"

"A hero Tornado pilot going 500mph 'back-flipped' his fighter jet at 250ft above the ground to avoid an inevitably fatal crash with a glider, it was revealed today. The daredevil's lightning reflexes allowed him to force his own plane downwards and miss the other aircraft by 'a quarter of a second' - or 100ft, an air investigation has found. His RAF jet was tearing through a valley in the Highlands on a training exercise when he saw the tiny glider coming towards him. To avoid collision at terrifying speed the fighter pilot 'bunted', an aerobatic move where a plane is forced into an inverted loop and speeds away upside down." [3]


"Free speech"

"I can't remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you're saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it's not literally illegal to express." (mouseover text from [4])


"Applied science."

"In the space of one hundred and seventy-six years the Lower Mississippi has shortened itself two hundred and forty-two miles. This is an average of a trifle over one mile and a third per year. Therefore, any calm person, who is not blind or idiotic, can see that in the Old Oolitic Silurian Period, just a million years ago next November, the Lower Mississippi River was upward of one million three hundred thousand miles long, and stuck out over the Gulf of Mexico like a fishing-rod. And by the same token any person can see that seven hundred and forty-two years from now the Lower Mississippi will be only a mile and three-quarters long, and Cairo and New Orleans will have joined their streets together, and be plodding comfortably along under a single mayor and a mutual board of aldermen. There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact. Mark Twain, Life on the Mississippi.

Knowledge...

"An encyclopedia presents knowledge; it is not a bestiary of delusions in which the length of coverage is based on the number of believers." Kiefer.Wolfowitz [5]
