    Quote of the day:

    An Indian-born economist once explained his personal theory of reincarnation to his graduate economics class. "If you are a good economist, a virtuous economist," he said, "you are reborn as a physicist. But if you are an evil, wicked economist, you are reborn as a sociologist." —Paul Krugman, "Peddling Prosperity: Economic Sense and Nonsense in the Age of Diminished Expectations" (1994, page xi):

    and if you are a good, virtuous physicist, you are reborn as an mathematician.

    and if you are a good, virtuous mathematician, you are reborn as an engineer.

    and if you are a good, virtuous engineer, you achieve satori!
