The best defense ...

Post by Surlethe » 2017-12-04 06:57am

... is a completed defense with all committee members' signatures. Now all that stands between me and some letters is paperwork.
Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp! Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

A decision must be made in the life of every nation at the very moment when the grasp of the enemy is at its throat. Then, it seems that the only way to survive is to use the means of the enemy, to rest survival upon what is expedient, to look the other way. Well, the answer to that is 'survival as what'? A country isn't a rock. It's not an extension of one's self. It's what it stands for. It's what it stands for when standing for something is the most difficult! - Chief Judge Haywood

Congratulations, Surlethe! :)

Impeccable timing, too. This thread was posted on a date 100 years since Finland gave its declaration of independence, you got your degree confirmed the day after and today (100 years after our Declaration of Independence was ratified by the Parliament), you can celebrate both your degree and Finland's Indpendence day! :p

Hey, Edi. I was wondering where you were. Haven't posted much in awhile.

And congrats Surl :) I still say American schools should follow the Finnish (or is it Swedish?) tradition of giving Ph.D graduates a top hat and a sword...

Congrats!
A minute's thought suggests that the very idea of this is stupid. A more detailed examination raises the possibility that it might be an answer to the question "how could the Germans win the war after the US gets involved?" - Captain Seafort, in a thread proposing a 1942 'D-Day' in Quiberon Bay

"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - Lincoln.
