Words to the Wise

When speaking to others, I believe in enlightened self-interest. In other words, always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

Importance of Fiction

I've learned that we must take great care with the fiction we write, because when written well it can affect people more than reality. The facts, it seems, are easier to ignore. As Winston Churchill said, "Many men stumble across the truth, but most manage to pick themselves up and continue as if nothing had happened."

Questions...

The laws of physics are intended to demystify the world, but the imagination continues to raise more questions. For example, if you are driving at the speed of light and you turn your headlights on, what happens?
