It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.

                                                                        SHERLOCK HOLMES (Arthur Conan Doyle)


Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but you know what you’re not entitled to? You’re not entitled to your own facts... Demand proof... but here’s the thing, when you get proof you must accept the proof.

                                                                        MICHAEL SPECTER


Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

                                                                        ROBERT J. HANLON


...and remember, everyone goes to college to get more knowledge – no one goes to Jupiter to get more stupider.
