    Well said! Add the apparently serious proposal to try and detect extra-terrestrial life “by the light emitted from their cities” to the list of utterly stupid research projects. The anthropomorphic assumptions underlying this bizarre proposal are just one of many reasons that this is a truly ridiculous project. Another can be found at, e.g., http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Nxj4uoxGRp8/TbeRVgfDE_I/AAAAAAAAYl4/Ex8RhPOupdc/s1600/14.jpg. Earth is lit up like a Christmas Tree!

    Harassment was unknown at Common Law because it involved mere communication. Only recently has it worked its way into civil and criminal law together with a host of non-wrongs.

    Updike wrote an unforgettable sentence on the experience of being beat up by a bully on his way home from school: “I received my first impression of the smug, chinkless, irresistible POWER of stupidity; it is the most powerful force on earth.”
