I'm going to have to take another night off. I had the surgery on my injured finger today and I'm supposed to keep that hand up above heart level, which doesn't go well with sitting here typing. The doctor seemed proud of her work and showed me a picture of it. She told me she thought there was a good chance that I'll end up with both a full length finger and full nail.
Meanwhile, I'll leave you with a favorite quote from one of my favorite role models, physicist Richard P. Feynman. It goes well today with the "follow the science" crowd arguing for the removal of human rights.
A followup idea to this is another quote of his: "Since then I never pay attention to anything by "experts." I calculate everything myself." The idea of ruthlessly questioning everything you think you know is missing today. We need to get back to that. If experts weren't questioned and challenged, there would be no progress of human knowledge.
Question everything. And calculate it yourself.
