Word for the day:  "biohacking".
golem1Professional Digital Artist
One fan said he enjoyed Shakespeare's plays, but found the dialogue tiresome in that it contained so many old cliches!  The explanation, of course, is that those cliches originated with Shakespeare, and they became cliches because they are so pithy and quotable.

In some quarters it is fashionable to invent a name for one's personal philosophy.   Asked how I see things, I once answered that I would call myself a Methodist, except that the term is already in use and means something other than what I would mean by it.  Indeed, I said that I consider myself to BE a method.   Hence the importance to me of the quotation in my signature line.
