    Default I am going to add this to the collection... Man, she's good looking!




    What should I name her?
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives.

    I'm always interested in what the 1%ers invest in. (Naturally, it would be impolite to ask what that set you back, but ............................?)

    That sword is about a $300 sword, handmade 13 folds (a bit over 8000 layers) nicely made but not a 1%er kind of thing. Just something for a man cave.

    Wouldn't that be more like 14 folds??

    Just asking.

    And I agree, it is nice.

    Pascal argues that a rational person should live as though God exists and seek to believe in God. If God does not actually exist, such a person will have only a finite loss, whereas they stand to receive infinite gains and avoid infinite losses.

    Looks expensive.
    (I don't want to tell you what to do here, but ...
    ... I would cut the $300 Price Tag off and replace it with a $30,000 Price Tag, that would impress the fuck out of MY friends)
