I love that 'Moon River' song :cry:

Especially when I see the moon reflected on the river...I start singing it. Then I usually fall off my bike.

I once got to sing "Music To Watch Girls By" with the legendary Johnny 7 at a wedding. I was channelling Andy Williams all the way. Brilliant - he will be missed.

My voice is too powerful for an Andy Williams style...I'm more of a Harry Secombe.

I'm more of a Spike Milligan. But even if I had a good voice, I wouldn't adopt Andy Williams's style.

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

"Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens."
("Against stupidity, the gods themselves contend in vain.")
-- Friedrich Schiller (1759–1805)
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

OK, now let's look at four dimensions on the blackboard.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Russell Means died on October 22. He was an Oglala Sioux activist for the rights of Native American people and libertarian political activist. He became a prominent member of the American Indian Movement (AIM) after joining the organization in 1968, and helped organize notable events that attracted national and international media coverage.

As an actor he appeared in numerous films, including an appearance as Chingachgook in The Last of the Mohicans (1992 ).
