Hear, Hear

"It doesn't make one stupid to hear again what one already knows!"

That's a proverb attributed to the late physicist S. Chandrasekhar by one of his students. I like it and tend to quote it occasionally. The other evening, though, after saying it once I suddenly decided to recite it again:

It doesn't make one stupid to hear again what one already knows!"

(Yep, another self-referential humor attempt—one of my incorrigible affectations ... and cf. RedundancyRedundancy (1999-04-23), LatePhysicists (2000-09-24), ChandraStories (2004-02-25), ...) - ^z - 2010-02-21
