Clarification: I'm not amused at them for singling out Android 2.x as being the worst thing since IE8; I'm amused at the fact that A2.x is the worst thing since IE8 when after IE6-8 it's IE9 that gets the most Hateraid from the internets yammerheads while A2.x is never mentioned at all.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
--Zachris Topelius


Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
