If this were facebook, I would click 'like'. But I can't. I just wanted to let you know how much I adore the "Knowledge without action is trivia," quote. Trivia = trivial. I will always wonder about the creation of the universe, etc., but that won't help me accomplish anything. I could spend time learning things I'm going to put to use, rather than dwelling on an ancient question. Oh, and I love "Hurtling through space has no effect on my immediate life. Unless we crash into another galaxy or something." It made me smile.

random question: is your title a Hitchhiker's Guide reference? Or is that a coincidence?
