If this becomes a thing, there'll be races. Maybe it'll be a demonstration sport at the Winter Olympics.

A New Patron for GIN - Ricky Gervais

"It is my great pleasure to announce that I am now a proud patron of Greyhounds In Need. For 18 years, GIN has been the only charity devoted to the rescue and rehoming of galgos, the native greyhound of Spain. Galgos suffer appalling maltreatment during their working lives and are then brutally killed or abandoned to starvation or worse.
The vital work GIN does is expensive, involving much voluntary work, transport to new homes all over Europe and improvements to rescue centres in Spain. Please join in in supporting this fantastic and much needed organisation and please help in any way you can. Just liking or sharing this page to raise awareness is much appreciated. No dog deserves to be treated like this. Dogs are our best friends. They are loyal, loving intelligent helpers and family members. It's time to give them a little love back.
Thanks for reading."
Ricky Gervais

...Popular Science quickly placed the chamber on the fold-out cover of its next issue, which reads, "FUCKING AWESOME!!! THE BALLS-OUT H.C. IS 40 TIMES BETTER THAN SEX... AND COUNTING!!!"
OAK RIDGE, TN—After six grueling years of Herculean research, scientists at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory pronounced EHC-1 Alpha, the new hyperbolic chamber, "an unquestionably, undeniably, fantastically revolutionary milestone in the history of science, mankind, and the universe, all of which it will undoubtedly change forever."

Introduction
“Then God sent the Greyhound to live among man and remember. And when the Day comes, God will call the Greyhound to give testament, and God will pass judgment on man.”
Persian Proverb

We have to remember that what we observe is not nature herself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning.
-- Werner Heisenberg

Puritanism. The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy. 
-- H.L. Mencken

Muzzle a dog and he will bark out of the other end.
-- Malcolm Lowry

I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I'm frightened of the old ones. 
-- John Cage

"When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem starts to look like a nail." 
-- Abraham Maslow (subtly paraphrased)

Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' 
-- Isaac Asimov

I've seen a look in dogs' eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.
-- John Steinbeck

History is merely a list of surprises. It can only prepare us to be surprised yet again.
-- Kurt Vonnegut

Wanting to meet a writer because you loved his book is like enjoying some pâté and wanting to meet the duck.
-- Margaret Atwood

A biologist, a physicist, and a mathematician are sitting in an outdoor cafe. They watch two people go into a building across the street. Shortly thereafter, three people come out.
"Hmm," says the biologist. "It looks like they reproduced."
"Nah," says the physicist. "There was obviously error in our initial measurement." The mathematician looks up from his coffee. "Who cares? If another person goes in, it'll be empty."

If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to serve as a horrible warning.
-- Catherine Aird  

"Faith and knowledge are related as the two scales of balance; when the one goes up, the other goes down… The power of religious dogma, when inculcated early, is such as to stifle conscience, compassion, and finally every feeling of humanity… For, as you know, religions are like glow worms; they shine only when it’s dark. A certain amount of ignorance is the condition of all religions, the element in which alone they can exist."
- Arthur Schopenhauer, Parerga and Paralipomena (1851), cited in Who’s Who in Hell compiled by Warren Allen Smith

I collect signed first editions of Orwell's '1984', most of which are carefully stored in my basement suite in Venice. I also have a timeshare on the shores of beautiful Lake Vostok.

Not a bad used bookstore, but I'd warn anyone sensitive to cigarette smoke that the proprietor smokes in the shop and the air circulation seems to be bi-annual.
