Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Thursday, September 17, 2021

I can’t decide just where I’d more want to integrate LEGO technology into my life: In my wardrobe as a geek-tastic customizable plastic-breastplate t-shirt, or in my television viewing with a build-your-own-button-combination remote control.

For everyone who, like me, can’t seem to make it through a single day without having quotations of varying value inflicted upon them, here are a couple that should (but won’t) end the practice altogether:

“I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Every word is like an unnecessary stain on silence and nothingness.” - Samuel Beckett

Of course, as Art Spiegelman pointed out in one of his books, Beckett did create words in order to negate them — thus negating the negation. Same goes for Emerson’s instantly-quotable anti-quote. It seems quote-marks are self-perpetuating.
