I seem to know way too many people who are stone set certain about their ideas.

“The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.”

-Bertrand Russell

World Philosophy Day

Just 1:15 until World Philosophy Day ends. That is, just one hour and 15 minutes if you live in US/Canada Central Time Zone.

Californians have much more time left today to think.

Some fun at BBC here entitled Four philosophical questions to make your brain hurt.

Does fear move you?

Or does hope?

Set aside the partisanship this first day after an historic election.

Hope has greater freedom to roam — to stir — the imagination.
