Some quotes from this morning's school work...

This morning (as always) i did schoolwork. And (as always) i found some intersting quotes. And now (for a bit of something our of the ordinary) i will share those qoutes with you, partly because they're funny, partly interesting, partly just to waste time so can blog rather than do chores...Anyway, the first quote, from "The Thinking Toolbox" (one of my favorite logic books, for more info go to: "There are 700,000 doctors in the United States, and they cause about 120,000 accidental deaths per year. This means there are about 0.171 accidental deaths per physician. Eighty million people own guns in the U.S., and they cause 1,503 accidental gun deaths per year. This means the number of of accidental gun deaths per gun owner is about 0.0000188. Statistacally, doctors are 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners are. Guns don't kill people; doctors do. (Out of concern for our readers, we will not give the statistics on lawyers, because the alarm might cause you to panic and seek medical attention.)" Now that, of course, is meant to be funny. And i thought it was. So laugh. NOW! Anyway, another interesting quote i found is a quote from Mark Twain (Which is not his real name, which makes him a dirty rotten liar...The snake...) "Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint"-Mark Twain Man he was a funny guy. (The lying snake...) And finally, one other interesting quote i found is from Karl Marx. OH NO! NOT HIM! I'M TURNING INTO A COMMUNIST!!! AGH!!! No, I am not turning into a communist. I came accross this quote and quite liked it. "The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways; the point, however, is to change it." There's one thing Marx and i can agree on. We need to change the world. Though the way he would change it, and the way i would change it would be much more than subtly different. Anyway, i'm done now, and dirty laundry and a house full of trahs is waiting for me...Chores...Cya!
