"One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don't throw it away." - Stephen W. Hawking

"No! Not enchanted bunny!" - McGliga to Sheldon

If you're not on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

When encountering cognitive dissonance, prepare to exercise parallel processing.

"The voices in my head hate my imaginary friends."

Quarks, leptons, and bosons are the fundamental particle aspects of Superstrings which make up the structure of all matter-energy and space-time in our Universe.

I always have some sort of electronic computing device on me. 21st century fashion.
Lutheran (Missouri Synod)
But believe in the Big Bang and evolution.
I enjoy studying cosmology and sub-atomic particle physics to learn more of God's creation.
German, Scottish, ... I'm related to you if we go far enough back.
I love my country and desire everyone to respect and get along with each other.
Every online political quiz I've taken says I'm a centrist with libertarian leanings.
Warning: I am Christian and conservative, but smart enough to see through political correctness and other forms of diversities attacking society's moral values.
Animals! ;-p
They are of my blood, sweat, and tears.

"To go forward, you must backup."

"I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code"

"A Windows user spends 1/3 of his life sleeping, 1/3 working, 1/3 waiting."
