The conversion of kinetic to potential energy is very much a burden. Admittedly, the inverse - the conversion of potential to kinetic - is absolutely enjoyable, that is until the potential has the potential to go beyond the kinetic capabilities and we find ourselves using kinetic to slow the conversion of potential to kinetic.

An amazing fact is the fact that we can decipher through the ambiguity of everyday language, and luckily so. For what question can be quested, what statement can be stated, what command can be commanded without complete ambiguity?

Pythagoras was an interesting man: He lectured his fellow brethren, be them animals or be them men.  He developed arithmetic, basic geometry and began to carve-out the current definition of the word 'theory'. He also developed the Pythagorean religion - one that disliked beans, disliked white roosters and liked a tidy bed. An interesting man. Perhaps if he is not to be remembered by the sum of the squares of the lengths of the sides of a right-angled triangle is equal to the square of the length of the hypotenuse, then at least remember him as you make your bed.

I take but a sip from the goblet that is knowledge.
Not all that I intend to drink nourishes my body.
Not all that I intend to have is controlled by the way I grip with my hands. Not all that there is will ever be mine.
I take but a sip from the goblet, for twenty-four years I take but a sip.

The fact that, at some point, the climate will no longer be as it is is highly probable. The only statement that negates this statement is that there will be no climate at all.

The difference between science and philosophy is that science concentrates on what is real and philosophy, on real is what.

To understand how one has a) derived an insect's name, and b) derived deriving an insect's name becomes a mixture of etymology, epistemology and entomology. The etymological, epistemological, entomologist. Perhaps an interesting area of study for epidemiologist - does titlic alliteration impact upon a population's health?

One thinks one understands the English language until one finds one's self having to talk about more than one ibis.
