Dr. Suess Quote

"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities." -Dr. Seuss

As my friend Fred remarked after a stint at Johns Hopkins, it can be mathematically demonstrated with chalk on a blackboard (or nowadays dry-erase markers on a whiteboard) that the probability of Objective Reality works out to zero. And as Henry Fielding argues in the earliest English-language novel, TOM JONES, the Improbable is less credible than the Impossible.
Please keep your head up when you're on skates.
