Good deeds do not go unpunished. --MtDPrematurely Indeterminate 20:17, 28 September 2012 (UTC)

A fearful responsibility.--Weirdstuff (talk) 20:02, 29 September 2012 (UTC)

Best not to actually engage with him, that just means he has more reasons to stay here and peddle. --Mikal Harass Follow 05:43, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

I did that to show how many scientific discoveries we have had, though they stick to bronze age beliefs.— Unsigned, by: Delphinidea / talk / contribs

That's nice for you. But did what and could you sign on my talk page? Thanks.--Weirdstuff (talk) 19:10, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

The most interesting phrase in science is not 'Eureka!," but, "That's funny...'" -Isaac Asimov--75.118.187.203 (talk) 16:33, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

In fact, it seems that the original phrase was: The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not “Eureka” but “That’s funny...”

I haven`t read the works in a while. Caught up in university matters...I'm currently reading, The Clock-Work Universe". Thanks for reminding me of the exact wording.--19:25, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

Thanks…[edit]

It's cool. I hope you have an interesting time here. Just one little point. It's a good idea to sign your posts with ~~~~ or (perhaps more easily) click the little pencil icon towards the top left of the edit box. That way your name and the date are automatically appended.  :-) --Weirdstuff (talk) 11:43, 16 September 2013 (UTC)
