I believe evidence.  I believe observation, measurement and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers.  I’ll believe anything, no matter how wild or ridiculous, if there is evidence for it.  The wilder and more ridiculous something is, however, the firmer and more solid the evidence will have to be.

 Waiting to go inside…  Is that camera still on me?
 Did someone say,
“Squirrel”?
 British gardeners
require constant
supervision…
 Hey Youse,
give us a treat!
 Just a little shade…
 In yer face training…  Are you ever gonna
get a life, Dad?
 The kennel never
said my new home
was a fixer-upper.
 I’ve gotta do
everything myself
around here…
 Yeah, the garden’s ok now,
but wait until I’m done with it…
 A quick pause
between
making trouble.
 That’s right – I’m gorgeous!  Not quite enough shade…
 She’s not fully trained,
but I like blonds.
 There’s like
NO privacy
in this house-hold!
 Squirrel???  Someone please
take that camera-phone
off him!

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.

Fire from the rear is more deadly and three times more effective than fire from the front, but to get fire behind the enemy, you must hold him by frontal fire and move rapidly around his flank.
 

—  General George S. Patton Jr.
 

[When I first read this quote as a child, I wondered how someone would KNOW how much more effective fire from a given direction would be.  Then I learned to play chess.  Upon a lifetime of reflection, this philosophy (engage and manuever) has proven true in even the most unlikely of situations.  Success frequently goes to those who approach indirectly.  —  KMAB]
