I love Carl Sagan

"Consider again that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar", every "supreme leader", every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there - on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam."

I told BFF that I would buy more talking computer items if the voice sounded like Carl's


I'm going to see if the library has this book. They have a copy of the Cosmos series, and (just my luck) my time on the super long waiting list came up at a time when I had no time to watch the 13 episodes! Thankfully R is a computer-guy and ripped 11 of them to iTunes! So now I just have to put them on my iPad and I'm set!

Oh Carl...

Who inspires you?

later loves
