I will now post inspiring words that I find in strange places (some people have quotes of the day. However, at the rate that I am finding these, I am not sure I can do more than a quote or two of the year).
Intelligence, then, means the capability to select the essential pieces out of a vast sea of information, and to reorganize them into a new meaningful statement called understanding. As we go through our lives, we experience a huge number of events. Experiences themselves, however, do not make us wise. Only after reflecting upon the experience and deducing the essential message from these experiences, do we learn something from life."
From "Underneath the Bragg Peaks: Structural Analysis of Complex Materials" by T. Egami and S.J.L. Billinge.

To appease Miss M who catches my speelling erorrs.
Some people can spell, while others can only spil
Some like E, make it to state at the bee, Others, out on the word kill (khil, cil, ckyl)?
People have different talents, they know different stuf
There are so many things filling our heads up with fluf
You expect a computer generation to speel? What the hek!
I suppose the real problems arise when they don't bother with spell chek!
