“I think I can sum up my religious feelings in a couple of paragraphs. First: I believe in you and me. I’m like Albert Schweitzer and Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein in that I have a respect for life — in any form. I believe in nature, in the birds, the sea, the sky, in everything I can see or that there is real evidence for. If these things are what you mean by God, then I believe in God. But I don’t believe in a personal God to whom I look for comfort or for a natural on the next roll of the dice. I’m not unmindful of man’s seeming need for faith; I’m for anything that gets you through the night, be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniel’s. But to me religion is a deeply personal thing in which man and God go it alone together, without the witch doctor in the middle. The witch doctor tries to convince us that we have to ask God for help, to spell out to him what we need, even to bribe him with prayer or cash on the line. Well, I believe that God knows what each of us wants and needs. It’s not necessary for us to make it to church on Sunday to reach Him. You can find Him anyplace. And if that sounds heretical, my source is pretty good: Matthew, Five to Seven, The Sermon on the Mount.” — Frank Sinatra

Scientists at the University of Chicago and the U.S. Dept. of Energy on Aug. 27 said they would test a theory that space-time is a quantum system, like matter. If true, it would mean that one cannot simultaneously know the location and speed of a given point in space.

did you hear? maroon 5 will be performing at the vma on 8/24 at 9/8c! 

How fucking boring, safe, and stale is MTV? Has been for a good decade or more, but really sad and kind of pathetic at this point.
