:D henry, now that you're annoying again again again, you made me think of a song about the next most annoying creature I know: The fly!

(Translated from Danish:)

I'm the fly and I have wings attached
That's why I don't bother using my legs
I was not made for something great
That's why you will find me on a turd.

There is an extended version.

(Translated from Danish:)

I can't dude, how can I sound like a fly? How the hell can I sound like a fly?
I am bzzzz... I have... Hahahaha...
I'm the fly and I have wings attached
That's why I don't bother using my legs

On a turd... Bzzz.....

That is actually a paradoxical statement. If know nothing, then I don't know that I don't know everything. Therefore I must know at least something.

A true statement would be "I know that I don't know everything". However, this could not be verified.

Or else "I don't know what is unknown to me." Tautology.

Or else "Not everything is an unknown." Empirical tautology.

"In order to hate someone else, first you must learn how to hate yourself."

"If "Jewry" is a bunch of Jews, then what's a "country"?" (Needs to be pronounced for proper appreciation.)

Reality is a convoluted apparition of the Truth.

This was true for Edison, but not for people like da Vinci, Tesla, Emerson, Teller, Moses and Manson.
