Quote of the Day

from my friend John:

 

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from a completely ad-hoc plot device"

     —David Langford, "A Gadget Too Far", as a corollary to Arthur C. Clarke's third law

"Captain, if we use the main deflector shield to create an inverse tachyon field,
this should serve as a splendid deus ex machina device."
