“Nothing defines humans better than their willingness to do irrational things in the pursuit of phenomenally unlikely payoffs. This is the principle behind lotteries, dating, and religion.”

“And bring me a hard copy of the Internet so I can do some serious surfing.”

“There’s nothing more dangerous than a resourceful idiot.”


“In Japan, employees occasionally work themselves to death. It’s called Karoshi. I don’t want that to happen to anybody in my department. The trick is to take a break as soon as you see a bright light and hear dead relatives beckon.”

– Scott Adams (1957- )
