“All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”
– Blaise Pascal

@InvaderXan I think this is a bad generalization to make. But the Pascal quote is one I have thought a lot about, not sure though. Sitting in a room sounds a lot like prison to me. The human genome is evolved for frontiers and exploration, it is not something you can turn off with a switch.

@InvaderXan When your stomach's growling, you have to get dinner somehow.😄
