Quote of the Day

Tim Lambert muses about what one scientific concept he would most like to teach the world. Lambert sez "random sampling", but I like this answer by "z" in his comments better:
That mathematical equations are not amenable to reason, pleading, threats, prayer, offers of compromise, etc. etc. etc.
I have this image of George W. Bush, looking at the balance sheet for the US treasury, all in red, begging a giant talking minus sign with all the desperation of a junkie:

"Please, c'mon man, don't hold out on me."

"Damn, fool, get offa me. Ain't my faultcha can't add, dumbass."

Any cartoonists want to run with that idea, feel free.
