Robert Anton Wilson's last days will be more peaceful thanks to a resounding surge of generosity from around the world. I am glad that such things can still occor. Hugs a week ago. A brilliant author's last few months (probably) in comfort instead of on the streets.
What's next?
Always there are three, yes?


and in my previous entry, I type cryptonomicon, when I should have typed illuminati.

Are people becoming more stupid as time goes by?
nope.
just
not willing to learn
which is much the same thing, at the end of the day.

A (non) rhetorical question,
What is the difference between stupidity and ignorance?
Stupidity is the desire to remain ignorant.

If you give a man a fish, he eats for a day.
If you teach him to fish he can eat for a lifetime.
If he can't be bothered to learn, that's good enough for me.

Closely followed by:

If you give a man a fire, he's warm for a day.
If you set him on fire, he's warm for the rest of his life.
