Science

Science: A way of finding things out and then making them work. Science explains what is happening around us the whole time. So does religion, but science is better because it comes up with more understandable excuses when it is wrong. There is a lot more science than you think.

Futurama – one of my favourite TV shows. Too bad it wasn’t a crowd-pleaser…

Resistance is futile!
Of course an hommage to the Star Trek series (TNG rules!) and especially to the Borg.
