Mind boggling sentence from page 5 of this chemistry textbook:

"Throughout this text, we return to this central idea: we study observable changes in matter to understand their unobservable causes."

This evening I was searching around for evidence of people doing simple graphics stuff with Clojure, and found this likable article:
http://www.learningclojure.com/2010/09/graphics-like-its-1979-how-to-get.html

The screenshot is of a comment at the top of the source code the author shared. I laughed, I hope you do to.

Oh, Dijkstra. So right, wrong, and utterly lovable all at once.

"There may also be political impediments. Even if we know how to educate tomorrow's professional programmer, it is not certain that the society we are living in will allow us to do so. The first effect of teaching a methodology—rather than disseminating knowledge—is that of enhancing the capacities of the already capable, thus magnifying the difference in intelligence. In a society in which the educational system is used as an instrument for the establishment of a homogenized culture, in which the cream is prevented from rising to the top, the education of competent programmers could be politically impalatable."

The Humble Programmer by. Edsger W. Dijkstra. As a result of a long sequence of coincidences I entered the programming profession officially on the first spring morning of 1952 and as far as I have been able to trace, I was the first Dutchman to do so in my country.

This artist, who goes by PEZ (also the name of one of my favorite candies), has some neat pixel-art, graffiti, and pop-culture inspired pieces that I like a lot:

Maybe the law that repeals the PATRIOT Act could be called the Matriot Act.

The author of this old Symbolics Lisp Machine manual apparently had an agreeable sense of humor.

The author of this computer science textbook took some time out of his busy day to include this funny joke in the chapter on computational geometry.

My kind of jokester.

I still do not want to live in a world that fails to discern between raising a question, and question begging.
